After the failure of the German Revolution of 1848, many educated Germans fled their homeland and settled in Belleville. By 1870, about 90% of Belleville’s residents were either German-born or of German descent.
The city became a manufacturing center after the American Civil War, producing printing presses, nails, agricultural equipment, gray iron castings and stoves. In fact, Belleville became known as “The Stove Capital of the World.” This type house, called a German Street House, was one of the first style houses in the city of Belleville which was established in 1850. South 15th Street has several of these wonderful homes.
If you are in the market for a circa 1877 fixer upper or an investment property this is the perfect house for you. With some TLC this would make a great home or rental. There is one bedroom and one bathroom and laundry on the main level and the upstairs has two shotgun rooms that could both be used as bedrooms.
