Historic Preservation
Bell County Courthouse_thumb.jpgBelton has several neighborhoods with historically and culturally significant structures, many dating back to the late 1800s. These buildings provide historic character and ambiance to the City. In an effort to preserve and protect the integrity of these structures, the Belton City Council has approved an Historic Preservation Ordinance and designated five historic districts: South Main Historic District, Lower West Belton Historic District, Downtown Commercial Historic District, Central Belton Historic District, and North Central Belton Historic District.

The intent of the Historic Preservation Ordinance is to protect and enhance Belton's attractiveness to visitors. It provides guidelines for orderly and efficient growth and development and encourages appropriate use of historic properties within the City.

Descriptions and maps of each district are available on the Historic District Page.
