Looking for Missouri’s headwaters, Lewis and Clark became some of the earliest explorers of the city now known as Bellevue. In 1822, the Missouri Fur company established one of its post in the town. Bellevue became a focal place of trading with a number of Native American tribes. Early trappers named the city Bellevue (French, meaning “beautiful view”), after being greatly surprised by the city’s views, which overlook the Missouri River.In an ideal location, having access to the Platte Valley on the Missouri River, the city has been a very prominent trading place of furs from the West and manufactured products from the East.
The establishment of Fort Crook (later known as Offutt Air Force Base) became very profitable for Bellevue from the 1830s until the 1850s, generating a very significant financial development for the region. During the first part of the 1940s, the opening of the enormous Martin Bomber Plant in the Offutt base doubled the population of the city from 10,000 residents to over 20,000, because of the arrival of numerous army members and civilians to work on the plant.
Nowadays, the region of Bellevue has over 69,000 inhabitants. The growth of the private sector economy is the major factor that generated this increase in the region’s population. The Kennedy Freeway opened in 1994. This, combined with the upgrade of the State Highway 370, enabled the Bellevue to become the third largest Nebraska city. The region’s population now have to endure shorter commute times to their workplace. The very significant increase in building and housing developments experienced by Belleville after the upgrades and the 1997 “Street of Dreams” is planned to continue. There are plans to establish over 4,700 housing units (2,800 single-family units and 1,900 multi-family units).
