Self-Guided Gardens & Grounds Tour
Though Belmont Mansion was the centerpiece of Adelicia Acklen's lavish summer estate, it was merely a small footprint on her nearly 177 acre estate. The grounds included a beautiful rose garden, various gazebos and large collection of animals. Her gardens and grounds even served as the first public park and zoo in Nashville, open to the public six days a week.
We have gathered several options for your to explore the Gardens & Grounds. Check out a virtual tour with historic photographs and listen to our podcast to immerse yourself in the beauty of Adelicia's estate.
