Belmont Mansion   Beatrice Cenci  Painti

Adelicia and Joseph Acklen built Belmont Mansion in the Italian Villa style in 1853

as a country estate and summer retreat from their Louisiana plantations.

There they raised their family in Adelicia's native Nashville until

December 1864 when the 4th Corps of the Union Army

occupied the house and grounds before the Battle of Nashville.

A majority of rooms in Belmont Mansion have been meticulously restored, complete with original and period furniture, artwork and statuary.
