Bellevue Mercantile

Our region has a rich history. This gallery with a store, barn, and yard is set in the year 1915, 100 years before the opening of the new KidsQuest. The actual Bellevue Mercantile was a gathering place for the community. This mercantile provides the familiar setting of a store with added historical
details that deepen the context for imaginative play. The adjoining barn and yard have animals to tend and products – eggs and milk – to bring to the store to sell. The cow wash is a sensory play extravaganza with air hoses, brushes, and the cowhide coat.
