Belmont Mansion Tour

Adelicia and Joseph Acklen designed Belmont Mansion as their home and as a statement of their political and social aspirations. Here they entertained visitors and raised a family on an estate built by enslaved African Americans and European servants. The construction of Belmont Mansion began in 1849 with a major addition by noted architect Adolphus Heiman in 1859, this is one of the 19th-century south’s largest domestic structures. Today, research guides the work of craftsmen who are preserving and restoring the house.Adelicia and Joseph Acklen were as interested in the art they filled their home with as they were the design of the house. Today a significant percentage of original furniture, paintings, statues, and other pieces of art are located throughout the house for visitors to see. All you need’s a ticket.
