 Belleview, a [[towns|town]] once refered to as "Mount Vernon,"​ "​Bellevue"​ or "​Grant",​ is located in the fertile bottoms of the [[Ohio River]]. During the mid-nineteenth century, Belleview profited from the Cincinnati to Louisville river traffic along the Ohio.  By the [[1860s]] the town had two tobacco warehouses, a [[hotels|hotel]] and several stores. ​ One of the major enterprises was a basket factory, which used riverfront willows. ​ Two [[churches]] served the faithful: [[Belleview Baptist Church|Baptist]] and [[Belleview Church of Christ|Church of Christ]]. ​ During the 1900's a graded school and a bank opened their doors. ​ The town was served by the Burlington-Belleview Turnpike (present Kentucky [[State Route 18|Route 18]]), which led to the county seat of [[Burlington]] and to nearby [[Middle Creek town|Middle Creek]]. Belleview, a [[towns|town]] once refered to as "Mount Vernon,"​ "​Bellevue"​ or "​Grant",​ is located in the fertile bottoms of the [[Ohio River]].

 Following the decline of river traffic in the late 19th century, the commercial life of Belleview quietly faded away.  During the 1937 Ohio River flood, the town and much of the surrounding farmland were inundated. ​ Despite changing currents, Belleview remains one of the best-preserved towns in the [[Boone County|county]];​ its [[historic homes|houses]],​ churches and [[citizens deposit bank|commercial buildings]] still retain the flavor of a 19th century river community. Following the decline of river traffic in the late 19th century, the commercial life of Belleview quietly faded away.  During the 1937 Ohio River flood, the town and much of the surrounding farmland were inundated. ​ Despite changing currents, Belleview remains one of the best-preserved towns in the [[Boone County|county]];​ its [[historic homes|houses]],​ churches and [[citizens deposit bank|commercial buildings]] still retain the flavor of a 19th century river community.
