Bellvue, Texas

Bellevue, Clay County, Texas

Bellevue is located on US Route 287 northwest of Fort Worth. As of 2000 there were less than 400 people living within its borders. The city was incorporated 1902. Growth was halted in 1906 when a tornado hit town and left little standing. Like many Texas ghost towns much of the population left during the Great Depression as people searched for work.

The few residents of Bellvue said most of the older buildings have been sold off for the materials, like fossils and old rock.
