From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bellvale, California is a populated place in San Mateo County, located at latitude 371843N, longitude 1221912W (decimal degrees: latitude 37.31194, longitude -122.32). The small community is on Highway 84 (La Honda Road) between San Gregorio and La Honda. Bellvale has an elevation of 240 feet above sea level.[1] Although Bellvale once had a post office, the community is now only sparsely settled with homes and farms.[2] The Bellvale post office, located 2.25 miles west of La Honda, opened in 1897 and was discontinued in 1922.[3] U.S. Geological Survey maps show oil wells in the area, tapping a relatively small pool of petroleum that was first identified in the nineteenth century.[4]
