Bell County, Tx.

named for Peter Hansborough Bell

Bell County was created from Milam County in 1850, just five years after Texas entered the Union. County Commissioners chose a county seat on the banks of Nolan Creek and named it Nolandsville. Two years later, January 12, 1852, the town’s name became Belton and it was incorporated. Bell is named for Peter Hansborough Bell, the third governor of Texas.
