Founded in 1873, Belleville flourished by milling the ore from the Northern Belle Mine in Candelaria. The mill located just east of here made its first bullion bar shipment ($9,200) in April, 1875.

Belleville was famous for murders, drunken brawls, "sporting" and practical jokes. It was also the terminus and work camp of the Carson and Colorado Railroad that reached town in 1882. At that time Belleville's population peaked at about 500 and included an assay office, an express office, a telegraph station, a livery stable, a schoolhouse, two hotels, several restaurants and blacksmith's shops, and seven saloons.

By the late 1880's pipes delivered water to Candelaria and allowed local mills to begin operation reducing the need for shipping costs. Belleville could not survive the competition and was deserted by 1892.
