Colonel John H. Sullivan

The Father of Bellaire, Ohio who "could hear more distinctly than other men, the footsteps of coming generations"

In November 1854, Colonel Sullivan platted the Harris Farm for a community incorporated in 1860 as Bellaire City, and in 1872 as the City of Bellaire.

His life was devoted with invincible spirit in promotion of the prosperity and growth of Bellaire, Ohio. President and Promoter of the Central Ohio R.R. and the Bellaire & Southwestern R.R., western agent of the Baltimore & Ohio R.R. during the Civil War, proprietor of the Star Glass Works, Sullivan Coal Works and Sullivan & Co. in real estate, he led the community in seeking approval for construction of The Great Stone Viaduct through the heart of the Bellaire business district, which today remains a National Historic Landmark revered by the community.

Dedicated August 15th, 2003, in the 200th year of the State of Ohio, and the 143rd year of incorporated Bellaire, by the Bellaire Bicentennial Committee, Village and Residents.
