    Favorite thing: Bellwood is a tiny town of about 420 (down 5% since 2000) located along Nebraska Highway 64 in eastern Nebraska. The main thing I noticed in Bellwood was the Presentation Church and School, which although it has seen better days, is still impressive. Also fo note is that Bellwood is close to the location of Shinn's Ferry (which was important to moving goods across the Platte River from 1859 to 1872) and the town of Savannah which was the first county seat of Butler County. The building of the bridge in Schuyler and the movement of the county seat to David City caused the demise of Savannah and today nothing remains.
