Bellefonte Town


Bellefonte Town Hall is located at 901A Rosedale Avenue, Bellefonte, DE 19809; phone:302-761-9638.

Bellefonte [1] is a small town located in northern New Castle County Delaware and has a history as a working class suburb of the City of Wilmington. Residential lots are relatively small and nearly all lots have been built upon. The majority of the homes were built between 1930 and 1950. About half of Bellefonte's homes are cape cods, single-family detached dwellings mostly clad with brick and/or siding. There are a few apartments surrounding Brandywine Boulevard, which is Bellefonte's Central Business District. In general, architecture in Bellefonte is turn-of-the-century Arts & Crafts, without extensive detailing. One can find a few homes that are a bit ornate.

Bellefonte's main street is Brandywine Boulevard, which runs through the center of town. The street is accessible by foot to most residents and is also the primary route for public transportation. Most of the streets follow a grid pattern, which is easy and convenient to navigate. There are a few tree lined streets and a limited number of sidewalks.

There are no industrial uses in Bellefonte and commerce is limited to Brandywine Boulevard between Maple Ave and Bellefonte Ave and one side of Philadelphia Pike between Bellefonte Ave and School House Lane. The Brandywine Boulevard business district (central business district) consists of several resale and other unique shops, two restaurants, laundromat, barbershop, plumbing company, and engineering company along with several apartments, one large apartment building, single-family homes, and the Brandywine Hundred Fire Company. Some of the businesses on Brandywine Boulevard are located in what were once homes. Parking in this business district is primarily on the street and in a small public parking lot. The Philadelphia Pike business district contains a variety of businesses including a gas station, restaurant/takeout, tattoo parlor, nail salon, an engineering firm, a produce market, van/car-rental company, and others. Each of the businesses has a small private or shared parking lot for their patrons.
