Hours and Directions
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.
