In the early 1900s, Bellerose was developed as a model community by Massachusetts real estate developer Helen M. Marsh. In 1907, she bought 77 acres of Floral Park, New York. The first Bellerose home was completed, under Marsh’s supervision in 1910. To ensure that construction deliberated up to her standards, she lived in each house as it was completed. Marsh influenced the Long Island Rail Road to place a station in the new village, and she named the station Bellerose. The name was officially declared in 1917. While some say the name derives from the Rose farm that was found to the south of the railroad and from the name of her daughter, Belle, Mrs. Marsh replied years later that she chose the name merely because it sounded “euphonious”.
