Bel Aire, Kansas: History and Fun Facts
The stream represents water which had been an issue from the beginning. Farmers began to settle in this area as early as the 1860s when government officials began opening more Indian lands. In the early 1950s, Tom Pearson, a wrestling Coach from Oklahoma, was intrigued with the development in the area that is now Bel Aire. He decided to purchase some land and start a farm, but he needed a reliable water supply. Pearson went to the City of Wichita asking to be part of their water system but received a sharp rejection. In 1955, several neighbors in the area went to Sedgwick County and petitioned to create an improvement district for water. Less than 30 years later, the City of Wichita and what is now the City of Bel Aire had a legal battle lasting 2 years over Bel Aire’s ability to incorporate as a town. The Case was taken to the Kansas Supreme Court where it was deemed that Bel Aire had the right to incorporate as a city in Kansas. The wheat fields were part of the surrounding landscape. In the early 1980s when the seal was conceived, Bel Aire had a total population of less than 2,500 people. In the late 60s, someone from this area would have to drive to 13th and Woodlawn for a hamburger at McDonalds or to go shopping (Sweetbriar shopping center). The closed movie theater at that time was at the drive-in in Park City, which is also where the closed grocery store was located. There was a convenience store—Shopeze— located at 45th and Woodlawn , which became the hang out place for many local teenagers. Between the late 60s and early 80s not much had changed as far as retail development near Bel Aire. Instead of shopping centers and office buildings, the citizens of Bel Aire were surrounded with farmland and wheat fields, which is exactly why they moved out here to begin with. These individuals were looking for the values and lifestyle of country living with the closeness of the bigger city.
