Bellville, Belle of the Bluebonnet Country, is the County Seat of
Austin County, Texas. It's close in proximity to Houston and
Bryan/College Station, but noted for typifying the small town
Founded in 1848 and incorporated in 1927, Bellville enjoys a population of approximately 3,800 residents. This desirable location is about 60 miles west of Houston, 13 miles north of Interstate Highway 10 & 18 miles south of Texas Highway 290. At an elevation of 275 feet above sea level, Bellville stands in timeless harmony with its green rolling hills and spectacular wildflower displays from early spring through late summer. Thomas and James Bell, one of Stephen F. Austin’s Old Three Hundred settlers, emigrated from Florida in 1822 to the Bellville area. They donated over 145 acres to Austin County and Bellville was named for them. Churches, a log cabin, and a wooden courthouse were the first public structures in Bellville. Most of the residents were farmers, and the town grew slowly until the coming of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1880, when the population rose from 300 people to 1,000 residents within three years.
