Final Resting Place

It is easy to forget that Adelicia and her family where not the only ones who lived at Belmont Mansion. According to the 1860 census, 32 slaves between the ages of 45 and 1 were at Belmont. However, the estate was also home to numerous employees who worked as overseers, gardeners, housekeepers, and even tutors for the children.

Recently our director, Mark Brown, visited Mt. Olivet Cemetery to take some photos of the Acklen masoleum where several family members including, Adelicia herself, are buried. However, while there he also located the graves of three former Belmont employees including Valentine Fischer, Leon Geny, and Henry Gray.
