The 54,000 residents of Bellevue enjoy the proximity of living just six miles south of Omaha along the Missouri River. Considered the second-oldest settlement in the state, Bellevue traces its roots all the way back to 1822 when it began as a fur-trading post. Named by French-Canadian trappers for its beautiful view of the river from its bluffs, several historical buildings still stand today. Bellevue is the home of Offutt Air Force Base.
