Introduction ...

Although we found mention of Bel Air during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer.

One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Bel Air. If you can help us locate Bel Air, please Contact Us.




We're sorry, but we are unaware of any TripAdvisor Tourism pages for Bel Air or the neighboring communities. TripAdvisor is always adding new communities and we suggest that you check with the TripAdvisor website to see if Bel Air has been recently added.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Bel Air and then turned west". While Bel Air could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Bel Air as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Bel Air could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are 2 Alabama communities also named Bel Air. While this community is located in Mobile County, the others are located in the following counties: Houston and Jefferson. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Bel Air.
