A Story Unlike Any Other 

Adelicia Hayes Franklin Acklen Cheatham was the driving force behind Belmont Mansion from the purchase of the original acres until its sale in 1887. The evolution of the estate followed the course of her unusually eventful life. 

The Civil War at Belmont Mansion

During the decisive Battle of Nashville  December 1864, Belmont Mansion was the headquarters for the 4th Corps of the U. S. Army of the Cumberland and witness to the unfolding of the battle that effectively ended the Civil War in the Western Theater. 

Adelicia's Grand Tour of Europe

Immediately following the Civil War Adelicia and her children left for Europe - to see the sights and reclaim the money she had secured in English banks.
