History

Township government is the oldest form of government in North America, beginning in 1636 and in Illinois in 1848. Belvidere Township began in 1850. There are nine townships in Boone County and these elected officials represent what is most commonly referred to as the government closest to the people. General Assistance, Property Assessment, and Road & Bridge Maintenance are the three basic services provided by our Township. Other services provide a link to the community that includes, but is not limited to, senior citizens programs, youth programs, assistance to the disabled, and cemetery maintenance.

 

A Brief History of Boone County (1835-1900)

Compiled by Anna E. Ralston

 

It is well established that the settlement of Boone County began in 1835. In that year there were permanent settlers in several of the townships. At that time there was no defined area called Boone County and the townships had numbers but no names.

 

The townships were very important to the early settlers. They were made up of thirty six sections of land, each section being one mile square. As the settlers filed claims to their land, their purchases were described in the deed as a fraction of a numbered section in a certain numbered township. The need for names for the townships was obvious.
