Labelle was originally settled by the Caloosa Indians, who used it to hold  religious rites. The name was derived from the French  word for "the beautiful" by Capt. Francis Asbury Hendry who named the area in 1896 for his daughters, Laura and Belle. LaBelleís beginning was as a river town with only a general store, mail drop and a few homes. Among the famous visitors to those  homes were Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
