Designated as the county seat in 1825, Belvidere retained its role as a bustling commercial center through the nineteenth century, boasting two carriage manufacturing businesses and the busy Bel-Del Railroad. Today, the town’s serene and peaceful blend of Colonial and Victorian homes shaded by large elms, oaks, buttonwoods and pines make its heritage unmistakable.

A self-guided walking tour highlighting the many historic buildings and Victorian homes will be available at the Community Center @ Belvidere, located at 301 Second Street, on Saturday, 10am-4pm.
