J. A. Cline and George M. Hoover were owners of the land on which Bellefont was platted in 1885. Hoover sold his platted land 3 years later to William H. Moffitt who added another 12 blocks. The railroad did not build a junction there as was anticipated, so the hope of the founders for Bellefont to become a thriving community fell through. There was a general store, a grocery store, and a depot in the early years of the town's existence.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
