Belmont Mansion is a must-see for anyone interested in Tennessee history, the Civil War, architecture, art and decorative arts.
Adelicia and Joseph Acklen, who were once among Nashville's wealthiest citizens, built the Italian Villa house in 1853. Belmont was part of a large country estate created as a summer getaway from the family's Louisiana plantations. Despite the Acklen's wealth and status, they were not immune to the troubles of war. In December of 1864, 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, including the display of original furnishings, artwork and statuary.
