This summer we are busy restoring the free-flying staircase leading to Belmont Mansion's cupola. It is a laborious process and still in progress. All balusters and handrails have been stripped of multiple layers of college era paint. Belmont is restoring Adelicia’s original mahogany stain to her walnut balusters and cherry handrail. Faux wood graining on the treads, risers, and stringers in imitation of American oak, is currently being restored by a local artist.
Stay tuned for more updates later this summer!
