Belmont Mansion, an Italianate villa, was constructed between the years 1849 and 1853. Once the summer home for Nashville socialite Adelicia Acklen and her family, it also served as temporary headquarters to the Union army, as well as an all-girls college and seminary. Surrounded by lavish gardens, the Belmont Mansion estate originally boasted 36 rooms and 19,000 square feet of living space. It was one of the most elaborate antebellum estates in the South. Belmont Mansion was built, furnished, and landscaped by the Acklens and boasted such luxuries as an art gallery, a bowling alley, and a zoo.

A National Historic Site since 1971, Belmont Mansion currently operates as a house museum, maintained by the Belmont Mansion Association through admissions, venue rentals, event fundraisers and individual and company donations. Belmont Mansion is open daily for guided tours, Monday-Saturday from 10am-4 pm and Sunday from 12-4pm. For general inquiries please visit or call 615-460-5459.
