The City of Bellaire is located in southeast Texas and has a population of just over 17,000 residents. Bellaire was founded in 1908 on what was part of a 95-hundred acre ranch, as a residential neighborhood and agricultural trading center. Today, the streets are lined with large oaks and custom built homes. Bellaire is located minutes southwest of Houston from the city’s downtown and the Galleria. Whether you’re here for a day a week or a lifetime, we look forward to welcoming you to Bellaire. The city recently celebrated its centennial anniversary. Visit the city’s Centennial Historical Walk (PDF).
The city functions as a residential community with a quality of life that promotes a family atmosphere. We have the great amenities of a big city and the charm of a small town including a quaint downtown area with several shopping and dining options to choose from.
