Welcome to Bellbrook!

The City of Bellbrook was settled in 1816 and was named for one of its founders, Stephen Bell. The City first attained a population of over 5,000 in 1970 when Bellbrook annexed a large part of western Sugarcreek Township. This led to official city status in 1974. The current census numbers residents at approximately 7,000 today. Bellbrook is unique because it provides a full range of services without a local income tax, being one of about 4 of Ohio’s over 250 cities without an income tax.
