Tour this beautiful home featuring Italian Villa architectural style.

The Belmont Mansion was built as a summer home for Adelicia Acklen and her family. Construction occurred between 1849 and 1853. Acklen was a Nashville socialite born on March 15, 1817. Her family was prominent in the Nashville area. She was married 3 times and had 10 children. The mansion has 20,000 square feet with 36 rooms and many luxuries such as an art gallery, a bowling alley, and a zoo, all set on 177 acres of land. Each room has intricate details, and the estate has been described as the most elaborate and unusual homes in the South.  

Besides a home, the Belmont served as a temporary Union army headquarters, an all-girls college, and even a seminary over its lifetime. It was made a National Historic Site in 1971 and operates as a house museum. The Belmont Mansion Association maintains the property through tours, venue rentals, event fundraisers, and donations. It is Nashville's most popular rental venue for weddings and other special events. The tours are self-guided; however, there are guides stationed throughout to answer your questions and provide insight into the home and those that once lived there. It is open Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm, and Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 10 am to 3 pm. This historical site is great for children and adults of all ages; come explore the mansion for yourself.
