Ginnie BakerI’m fortunate enough to live in a beautiful part of North Central Ohio; the Village of Bellville in the Clear Fork Valley. It reminds me of New England with the rolling hills, trees and farmland.

Originally, in 1808, two men forged a road from Fredericktown to Bellville. That was the beginning of the Village. In 1815, Robert Bell laid out the original plat and that was the real beginning of the Village of Bellville.

At times, the Village is like Mayberry, straight from the old Andy Griffith Show. However, unlike Mayberry, there is always something going on in Bellville.

Our Village is like a Norman Rockwell painting with a tree-lined Main Street, restored old buildings and friendly people.
