Bellvue, Co. is nestled next to the Poudre River. The first white settlers arrived in the Poudre River valley soon after Antoine Janis became the first white settler in northern Colorado in 1858. In 1873, Jacob Flowers arrived in the valley and set up a homestead on a parcel of land he purchased from Joseph Mason. Flowers had migrated westward from Ohio and Missouri after the Civil War and had settled temporarily in Greeley in 1872. The following year, Flowers followed the Poudre upstream and founded the town of “Bellevue” later that year (the name was later shortened).
