Belleville (French: "Belle ville" meaning "Beautiful city") is a Township in Essex County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 35,928.

Belleville was originally incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 8, 1839, from portions of Bloomfield. Portions of the township were taken to create Woodside Township (March 24, 1869, now defunct) and Franklin Township (February 18, 1874, now known as Nutley). The independent municipality of Belleville city was created within the township on March 27, 1874, and was dissolved on February 22, 1876. On November 16, 1910, Belleville was reincorporated as a town, based on the results of a referendum held eight days earlier.[9] Belleville adopted its current township form of government in 1981.[10]
