On the Chisholm Trail
Imagine a time when cattle were herded up North on the Chisholm Trail and Belton was one of the resting stops in the 1870's, even though founded in 1850. Known at that time for the Belton Merchants First Mondays where the best "Trading & Selling" occurred and everyone traveled to be there dressed in their best. Belton's Historic Downtown still hosts a revitalization of those days which is now called "Belton Market Days - Buying & Trading" every third Saturday of the month.
