The City of Bellbrook
was settled in 1816 and was named for one of its
founders, Stephen Bell.
Achieving City Status
The city first attained a population of over 5,000 in 1970 when Bellbrook annexed a large part of western Sugarcreek Township. This led to official city status in 1974.
The current census numbers residents at approximately 7,000 today. Bellbrook is unique because it provides a full range of services without a local income tax.
