I was born and raised in Bellaire. I've raised my two children here also. Bellaire is a town that has lost so much. It used to be a booming business town due to being right on the Ohio River. But, many businesses have been closed. The residents are some of the most caring people you'll ever meet. We love our high school football...Go Big Reds! There are a few amazing family owned restaurants to choose from. You'll never find a better hot dog than the ones Gulla's sells.

I like living in Bellaire, Ohio because I know my neighbors. I can walk down the street at any given time and know the person walking on the other side. Bellaire used to be known as the All American town. However, I am saddened to say that in the few recent years Bellaire has lost its sense of community. Trash litters and lays on every street and people have lost hope and turned to drugs to escape. I would like to see Bellaire restored to its former "glory days". I think this can be achieved by cracking down on drug offenders and helping drug addicts. Bellaire needs to come together as a community, clean up the abandoned buildings, pick up the trash, and help the addicted instead throwing them behind bars. Too many people have the idea that someone else will do it. Children are being left unattended with no guidance as to how to take care of their community by volunteering and showing compassion for others.
Bellaire is a small, close-knit town in Southeastern, Ohio. It is a town of endless history, once beaming with businesses and attractions. Unfortunately, in recent years, the town has been filled with drugs and bad news. A community once known for a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, "The All-American Town," has been taken over by one of humanity's biggest enemies. This town could use a big, positive change.
