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.

The architecture of Belmont Mansion makes it one of the most significant homes of 19th century Tennessee.

Sold by the Acklen family in 1887, the house went to a developer who began one of Nashville’s early suburbs.

It was then purchased by two women who in 1890 started a college which evolved into Belmont University. Today the Belmont Mansion Association, which was formed in 1972, owns the collection, runs the museum, and shares this unique story of 19th century Nashville with visitors from far and near.
