Cemetery notes and/or description:
Founded in 1873, Belleville flourished by milling the ore from the Northern Belle Mine at Candelaria. The mill made it's first bullion bar shipment of $9,200 in April 1875. Belleville was famous for murders, drunken brawls, red-light districts, prostitution, gambling and practical jokes. It was also the terminus and work camp of the Carson and Colorado Railroad that reached the town in 1882. At that time Belleville's population peaked at about 500 and included an assay office, express office, telegraph station, livery stable, schoolhouse, two hotels, several restaurants and blacksmith shops as well as seven saloons. By the late 1880's pipes delivered water to Candelaria and allowed local mills to begin operation reducing shipping costs. Belleville could not survive the competition and was deserted by 1892.
