Visit Belmont Mansion
We invite you to explore 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 a unique opportunity to explore one of the few 1850s era homes still standing in Nashville while learning about the people - both free and enslaved - whose stories make this site worth understanding.
The first floor of Belmont Mansion is wheelchair accessible. For assistance entering the Mansion, please call 615-460-5459 when you arrive and a tour guide will lead you to an elevator if needed.
For those who are unable to climb the stairs to the second floor bedrooms, we have a virtual tour available in the Museum Shop.
No video or personal photo shoots are permitted.
Publicity photos allowed when prior arrangements have been made with administrative staff.
Belmont Mansion is just 15 minutes from downtown Nashville and 20 minutes from the Nashville Airport and Opryland area.
Located on the beautiful campus of Belmont University, the Mansion is just off Acklen Avenue and behind Freeman Hall.
Our parking lot has its own Google Maps pin. Just search for Belmont Mansion Visitor Parking.
Parking on campus is free - as long as you are in a visitor parking space.
There is a visitor parking lot adjacent to Belmont Mansion. Overflow parking is available in any university visitor parking lot. Please be sure to observe CITY parking signs when parking in the neighborhood off campus. Towing is enforced.
