Bellevue was named after the Revolutionary war hero General James Taylor, one of the wealthiest men in Kentucky after the Civil War. He named the city, Bellevue (Beautiful View) after a creek near his plantation in Virginia. Not only did he name the city, but he also promptly named most of the streets in the historic district – Lafayette Avenue, Taylor Avenue, Washington Avenue, etc... One can visit his home on the East Row Historic District in nearby Newport.
