About this title


Bellevue received its French name, meaning “beautiful view,” from fur trader Manuel Lisa as he stood high atop a hill, looking out at the scenic Missouri River Valley before him, or so the legend goes. Two hundred years after Lisa’s proclamation, Bellevue has grown to become a sprawling metropolis proudly recognized as the third largest city in Nebraska. However, the story could have ended long before this. Bellevue was originally supposed to serve as an important railroad thoroughfare and as the first capital of the Nebraska Territory. Neither of these ultimately happened. Yet, Bellevue has persevered onwards and upwards. From its origins as little more than a trading post for westward travelers and Native Americans, to serving as the headquarters for the former Strategic Air Command at the onset of the modern jet age, Bellevue has taken a remarkable journey.

About the Author:

Many of the photographs in this book have been found within the archives of the Sarpy County Museum. Local residents and organizations from within the community have also graciously shared their collections. Sarpy County Museum executive director Ben Justman has carefully selected these images in an effort to best represent the rich expansive history of Bellevue.
