Homes for Sale in Bellefontaine, OH

It's tough to pin down exactly what Bellefontaine's claim to fame truly is. The enigmatic city that surrounds the homes for sale in Bellefontaine, OH has quite a bit of personality and storied history from which to draw its renown.  McKinley Street near the city's downtown core is reportedly (and labelled) the nation's shortest street,  Bellefontaine's chamber of commerce only goes as far as claiming it as America's shortest street.

Bellefontaine also hosts America's very first paved, concrete street, Court Avenue. It runs alongside the Logan County courthouse and is still made up of this original material to this day. A single lane of traffic has been closed and there now stands a proud statue of George Bartholomew, the paving technique's inventor.
