Belleville, Wisconsin - The "UFO Capital" of Wisconsin

Belleville is a village located along the Sugar River with Lake Belle View in the village center right off of Main Street. It is situated in both Dane and Green counties just to the west of the Brooklyn Wildlife Area.

At least some of the land the village now occupies was owned between 1838 and 1841 by Daniel Webster, the American statesman, who also speculated in land on the frontier. In 1845, John Frederick acquired property around the Sugar River and commenced construction of a dam and sawmill, and later a grist mill. By 1850, along with John Mitchell, Frederick platted the village and named it Belleville after his hometown of Belleville, Ontario.
