I come from a small town called Bellville, Ohio. This is a great community to raise kids and develop a family. We just had our 50th anniversary on our Street Fair, people from all around the nation come every year. Community is very supportive if you have financial issues or anything else like that. I'd like to pay back my community for being who they are and being so great for me to grow up in.

Bellville Ohio is what I call home!

I've been to many parts of the country but nothing and nowhere compares to this place I call home. I live in the country and have the ability to walk outside my doors and drink in the fresh air. To be able to walk around my yard not worried about my well being is so important! This is a place I look forward to raising a family in.
People have many generations here like 4 to five. The community does a lot together such as a fair, trick or treat parade, and sleigh rides during the winter.
