Stories of the Past - Conversations for the Future
Discover the largest house built in Tennessee prior to the Civil War. Constructed between 1849 and 1860, Belmont Mansion was the home of Adelicia and Joseph Acklen.
Visiting here is an opportunity to explore one of the few 1850s era homes still standing in Nashville while learning about the place and the people -- both free and enslaved -- who make this site worth understanding.
A majority of rooms in Belmont Mansion have been meticulously restored,
complete with original and period furniture, artwork and statuary.
