Château de Bellevue
The Château de Bellevue was a small château built for Madame de Pompadour in 1750. It was constructed on a broad plateau in Meudon, above a slope overlooking the Seine to the east, but was demolished in 1823 and little remains. At the instigation of Louis XV, Charles François Paul Le Normant de Tournehem, directeur général of the Bâtiments du Roi, negotiated the purchase of the land from its various owners, located between Louis' châteaux at Meudon and Saint-Cloud. Ange-Jacques Gabriel, Premier architecte du Roi, proposed the construction of a pleasure house to be named "Bellevue", referring to its views over the Seine. In 1749, Louis gave the land to Madame de Pompadour, who delegated the building to her architect, Jean Cailleteau, assisted in the gardens by Jean-Charles Garnier d'Isle; the work was completed, despite the need for deep foundations. 800 workmen were employed with Louis in attendance, the building was completed in 1750. Madame de Pompadour commissioned François Boucher to paint La Toilette de Vénus for her dressing room at Bellevue.
Pompadour was Boucher's patroness from 1747 until her death in 1764. The Château de Bellevue is an important step in the evolution of the French château, it was a modest building, more like a house of a rich nobleman than a royal chateau, reflecting its role as an intimate meeting place for King Louis and Madame de Pompadour. The building was square, with nine bays to the front and six on the sides, it had two storeys, in a form typical of the fashionable "country cottages", such at those at the Petit Trianon. Each facade was surmounted by a triangular pediment, decorated in high relief. Busts were placed between the bays on the first floor of Roman emperors. Due to the small size of the main building, small buildings around a courtyard to the west contained the domestic services. A substantial formal parterre was laid out to the west, with walks down the slope to Brimborion on the banks of the Seine to the east. In 1750, Madame de Pompadour acquired a small building at the bottom of the slope, on the banks of the Seine, called Brimborion, linked to the new residence through its gardens.
After the King and Madame de Pompadour grew apart, Louis repurchased it in 1757 and had it redesigned by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, adding two wings linked to the main building. After the death of King Louis XV in 1774, the chateau was transferred to his daughters, Madame Marie Adélaïde, Madame Victoire and Madame Sophie, they redesigned the interior again, created a jardin anglais orné at Brimborion, similar to Chantilly or Trianon. The owners departed in 1791 during the French Revolution; the Château was demolished in 1823 at the instigation of Achille Guillaume, new buildings were built on the site. The last remains of the Château disappeared in the 20th century, except the ice house and parts of the terrace.

Bellvue is an unincorporated community and U. S. Post Office in Larimer County, Colorado, it is a small agricultural community located in Pleasant Valley, a narrow valley just northwest of Fort Collins near the mouth of the Poudre Canyon between the Dakota Hogback ridge and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The ZIP Code of the Bellvue Post Office is 80512; the community is lush area on the south side of the Cache la Poudre River, at the mouth of Rist Canyon, concealed from the open Colorado Piedmont near Fort Collins and LaPorte by the Bellvue Dome known as "Goat Hill". The valley stretched southward between the hogback and foothills into the area now inundated by Horsetooth Reservoir; the main agriculture in the valley is cultivation of hay and other crops, as well as cattle and horse ranches. The Colorado Division of Wildlife maintains a large trout hatchery in the valley just north of the Bellvue town site. Paleoindian sites nearby, including a large bison kill site along the Poudre River, indicate human habitation dating back over 10,000 years.
In the early 19th century, the area was inhabited by bands of Arapaho, who clashed in small skirmishes with bands of the Ute tribe who inhabited the mountains. Archaeological remains of teepee rings can be found in the surrounding foothills; the first white settlers arrived in the valley soon after Antoine Janis became the first white settler in northern Colorado in 1858. The farm and pasture lands were squatted upon in the two years that followed, so that most was claimed by G. R. Sanderson, one of these first settlers, who built the first irrigation ditch in the county in June 1860; the ditch was the second one constructed in northern Colorado. Sanderson sold his claim to J. H. Yeager in 1864, the ditch came to be known as the Yeager ditch. Another early settler, Samuel Bingham, settled on the west slope of Bingham Hill in 1860. In 1860, Abner Loomis, an early prominent resident of Fort Collins, settled on a ranch in the valley. Other early settlers in the 1860s included Benjamin T. Whedbee, Perry J. Bosworth, C.
W. Harrington, Louis Blackstock. In 1873, Jacob Flowers arrived in the valley and set up a homestead on a parcel of land he purchased from Joseph Mason. Flowers had migrated westward from Ohio and Missouri after the Civil War and had settled temporarily in Greeley in 1872; the following year, Flowers followed the Poudre upstream and founded the town of "Bellevue" that year. The area was considered desirable by the Union Pacific Railroad because of the many stone quarries in the area near the town of Stout; the influx of railroad workers to work the quarries prompted Flowers to open a general store, barber shop, post office. In 1880 he built a one-story sandstone structure to house his business; the Bellvue Post Office opened in the building on June 24, 1884. The building served as the local general store and post office up through the middle 20th century, when it became the meeting house of Cache la Poudre Grange, Chapter 456 of the Colorado State grange, a designation for which it is now known.
Flowers constructed a track and bandstand south of town, used for horse racing, community celebrations, traveling medicine shows, dog and pony shows. Bellvue is located at 40°37′32″N 105°10′16″W.
