The story of the Yardmen
In the 1960s a group of railroaders known as “The Belleville Yardmen” decided to have a raffle to raise money for a coworkers retirement, it’s success led to monthly draws and when they realized they could sell the tickets anywhere the railroad went, well things really took off! What began as something simple had grown into a wonderful opportunity for the yardmen to invest funds into their community. So invest they did with the decision to raise funds to build a new area for Belleville. The Yardmen raised more than $3 million and in 1978 the Yardmen arena opened its doors. Today the arena has another name but a project is in the works to create a memorial honoring the Yardmen’s contribution to our community.
