Belvidere, Illinois

Belvidere is another distant exurb of Chicago, and a direct suburb of Rockford. It lies on the bank of the Kishwaukee River.
The main railroad was a Chicago & North Western branch line from Chicago to Freeport, now Union Pacific. Other small spurs and an Interurban once existed.
A former line from Belvidere to Kenosha is also abandoned, but traces remain in Belvidere.
