Fun Facts:

What is now Belleville Lake, used to be the old village of Rawsonville before it was purposely flooded to make the lake.

Rawsonville boomed from the 1820’s-1880’s. Then it was submerged underwater in 1925 when the area was flooded to create Belleville Lake. In 1823 it was called Snows Landing, then by 1838 it was Rawsonville.

The Civil War peaked in the 1860’s. There were sawmills, copper shops, stove factory, general store, 3 saloons, wagon maker, whorehouse, etc. Then the area gradually declined.
