Bellevue Real Estate Information

Bellevue is a relatively small community situated in the northern portion of Kentucky, near the state's border with the Buckeye State of Ohio. Bellevue has a population of approximately six thousand five hundred residents, and is considered a part of Campbell County. Bellevue is situated along the Ohio River, and is technically located within the suburban area of Cincinnati, the third largest city in the state of Ohio. Bellevue is across from the Ohio community of Mount Adams, which is also a suburb of Cincinnati. Bellevue borders a number of other communities as well, most of which are on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River. Bellevue is adjacent to Newport, Dayton, and Fort Thomas, all of which are fellow communities of Campbell County.

Bellevue encompasses just under one square mile of space, meaning that Bellevue has a relatively high population density despite its primarily suburban composition. Bellevue is situated on slightly slopped land at an elevation of about five hundred fifty feet, and was originally inhabited by Illini, Miami, Cherokee, Shawnee, and Tuscarora Native Americans. Bellevue was first heavily settled by non-Native Americans towards the beginning of the nineteenth century, when a plantation by the name of Bellevue was slowly transformed into a city. Bellevue grew substantially during the second part of the nineteenth century, and was a beach destination at one point in time. Bellevue is currently experiencing another population boom thanks to the expanding boundaries of the city of Cincinnati.

One of the most easily recognizable landmarks in Bellevue is the late nineteenth century Sacred Hearts Church, which appears on the official emblem of the city. The nearby city of Cincinnati offers a number of attractions, as do the suburban communities surrounding it. Some of these include the Museum Center at Union Terminal, the Art Museum, the Cincinnati Symphony, and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The educational needs of Bellevue are met by a number of public and private institutions, including Bellevue High School and Saint Therese School. Some parks and recreational facilities in and around Bellevue include Eden Park and Sawyer Point Park.
