Library Restoration Update

In January 2014, we began the restoration of Belmont Mansion's Library. Restoration work began with several days of paint analysis on the ceiling which revealed the original paints colors and mural design. Decorative painters have been hard at work, recreating every last detail of Adelicia's elaborate ceiling design.

In addition to reproducing the original ceiling mural, we are reproducing the origial faux graining on all door and window frames in the room. This meticulous work has taken over two weeks to compelte because each line, swirl and accent is done by hand. It is a true work of art, and we are delighted at how it will enhance the beauty of Adelicia's Library.

The architecture of Belmont Mansion makes it one of the most significant homes of 19th century Tennessee.

Sold by the Acklen family in 1887, the house went to a developer who began one of Nashville’s early suburbs.

It was then purchased by two women who in 1890 started a college which evolved into Belmont University. Today the Belmont Mansion Association, which was formed in 1972, owns the collection, runs the museum, and shares this unique story of 19th century Nashville with visitors from far and near.
