Bellevue is a city located in Sarpy County, Nebraska, and is currently home to a population of over 50,000 residents, making it the third-largest city in Nebraska by population. Once the seat of government for the state, Bellevue is the second-oldest settlement in the state, but is the oldest continuously-settled town in all of Nebraska. The Nebraska State Legislature has officially named it as “Nebraska’s Oldest City,” a moniker that they now use as their motto. It’s name is French, and means “beautiful view.”
Bellevue was incorporated as a city in 1855 and was once the seat of government for all of Nebraska, until it was moved to Lincoln. Before incorporation, though, the area that has become Bellevue was home to a number of different trading posts over the years, and was a popular fur trading location prior to western expansion before, during and after the American Civil War. Bellevue was thought to become one of the largest cities in Nebraska, but after the turn of the 20th century, focus in the state shifted to Omaha and Lincoln, and Bellevue began to see its growth slow and eventually stagnate for a time. The city has been growing in recent years, thanks to a shift to a more service-oriented economy, and today it is the third-largest city in the state.
During the summer months, average daily highs in Bellevue tend to reach into the mid-to-upper 80’s, while overnight lows tend to drop down into the low-to-mid 60’s. This makes for a pleasant area during the spring and summer, and even into the fall. During the winter, however, average highs only reach into the low-to-mid 30’s, with lows often falling into the teens. Snow is not entirely uncommon, which can cause prices to go up and delays in pickup or delivery.
