Belleville in St. Clair County, Illinois — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Ever and Anon Park
Old Belleville Historic District, one block south of East Main, is an architectural time capsule of Belleville's growth since the 1850's. The area was once the location of two brickyards and displays the durability of both soft brick, as seen in the working man's German American folk house, and hard brick, used in the more elaborate houses of wealthy businessmen.
Erected 2000 by Belleville Historic Preservation Commission.
