Close to Downtown St Louis, Great Housing Prices, Charm for Miles
There is a place 15 minutes east of the Gateway Arch and Busch Stadium, a town that feels like a neighborhood, the birthplace of Uncle Tupelo, with supposedly the longest Main Street in the world running its length, filled with friendly people all speaking a shared language, who gather together at events and festivals on its town square, in the bars, restaurants and businesses along a brightly lit Main Street and in peaceful neighborhoods.
Belleville’s children attend schools where strength of character is taught and expected, they play under the streetlights of safe neighborhoods and form friendships that last a lifetime.
We speak St Louis just as fluently as we speak Belleville. Located just 15 miles from St Louis, we mostly root for the Cardinals, and though we find it perplexing, we are amazingly tolerant of those who don’t. Same goes for our allegiance to the St Louis Blues.
We know our way around Downtown St Louis, we can point you to the Blues Museum as well as the the City Museum where kids disappear into caverns, circuses, architectural museum exhibits and other artistic wonders. We know all the right places to see a show, to eat, to have a first date, to have any kind of fun on either side of the river right down to the best places to park when you visit the St Louis Zoo.
We’re comfortable with St Louis but we’re just as likely to be spending a lazy day off around the grill maybe taking a run down the street for more briquettes. In Belleville you can get what you need from our shops and good neighbors.

LiveLoveBelleville is: fishing at Southside Park, the sound of kids playing outside, catching a live show or a matinee at The Lincoln Theatre, spending an afternoon at the Skate Park, watching a historical neighborhood come back to life around you, a snowball fight breaking out outside a downtown club.
