Bellaire History

Bellaire has come a long way in the last 100+ years and thanks to longtime resident Lynn McBee the City’s history will unfold on these pages.

October 28, 2022: Sadly we lost Lynn this past weekend.   Her volunteerism, historical perspective on city adminisrations, and her skill in maintaining a written record of Bellaire’s history  will be missed.

A Bellaire historical article first published in 2008 will be posted every 2 weeks or so and the table of contents will grow accordingly.  Click on the title to access a complete article.   Welcome to Bellaire, Texas!
