Located across the bridge on the south side of the Monongahela, Speers Street Grill serves up old-fashioned American fare that's just as comforting as its company.

What You’ll LOVE in Belle Vernon

Wondering about some other perks that come with living in Belle Vernon? Here's what you need to know about this charming suburb!

Ideal location

Belle Vernon might feel like a riverfront paradise, but you'll always be just a stone's throw away from everything the area has to offer. Take a day trip or commute into the city of Pittsburgh, where you'll discover attractions like Point State Park, Mattress Factory Art Museum, Kennywood, or the Pittsburgh Zoo. Larger communities—including Washington, Uniontown, and Greensburg—are also within driving distance. 

Top-notch schools

Children living in Belle Vernon attend the Belle Vernon Area School District, which operates two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Older students can also choose to attend BVA eAcademy online, or enroll in the specialty Central Westmoreland Career and Technology Center in New Stanton. A majority of Belle Vernon students are proficient in reading and math, while the district as a whole achieved an enviable 92% graduation rate.

Affordable homes

Though Belle Vernon might offer everything you could ever want or need, you won't have to pay a premium for these spectacular homes. Typically, properties in Belle Vernon sell for around $170,000, which is much lower than the national average. Buyers can find a number of smaller historic homes close to downtown, although it's not uncommon to discover houses with more land further out into the suburbs.
