Bellevue, Ohio, is situated on the corner of four counties-Erie, Huron, Seneca, and Sandusky-which were all part of the Firelands of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Historic Lyme Village was founded in 1977 as a place to preserve the history and heritage of this whole area. Now, 25 years later, the site is home to a collection of buildings that were moved here for historical preservation, providing housing to the many artifacts that have been donated to the Historical Society over the years. Bellevue and Historic Lyme Village records the photo history of these buildings and represents, as well, the history of Bellevue and the surrounding small towns that have shrunken in size as progress continues. This collection of vintage photographs also covers the Railroad, which was important to the development of the area, and the Interurban, which made travel much easier to Cleveland, Toledo, Detroit and Sandusky.
