Belton History

The Shawnee had lived around the area that became Belton and were guaranteed certain lands by a treaty. Many headed to Oklahoma during the Civil War to escape harassment. Those who returned found that settlers had filled their reservation, so they ended up going back to Oklahoma. Belton was incorporated in 1872. It was named for a Civil War captain who was friends with one of the founders. Early residents were mainly from Kentucky. Carry Nation, a temperance activist known for taking a hatchet to saloons, lived near Belton as a child. After her death in Lawrence, Kan., in 1911, she was buried in the family plot in Belton.
