The City of Belleville is a historic and attractive community on eastern Ontario’s picturesque Bay of Quinte. Established in 1816 as a town site, Belleville has undergone significant changes. Today, it is a vibrant community offering many advantages to its citizens and visitors.
This book is not a complete history of the city. Such a history, with lists of former mayors and councillors and summaries of all the achievements of churches, service clubs, and other groups, would fill many volumes. Rather, it is a personal commentary on some of the most important and interesting events, personalities, and places from the community’s long and eventful past.
