Central Parlor Carpet Installation

On Monday, September 11, 2017, Belmont Mansion received a long awaited delivery - the historic reproduction carpet that will complete the restoration of the Central Parlor.

Over the last eighteen months, we have anxiously awaited the final piece - the historic reproduction carpet. This carpet was made by Grosvenor Wilton Company Ltd. of Kidderminster, England. Grosvenor Wilton is the oldest carpet maker in England and has a wealth of historic patterns in their archives.

After manufacturing, the carpet made its way to Cincinnati, Ohio, where it was in the capable hands of Gfroerer Company, which managed the final preparation and installation. This included hand sewing each panel together which resulted in a single roll. Gfroerer is a family run business that has been in the industry for five generations, and we were fortunate to have a Gfroerer family member oversee the installation.

We have waited three long years to complete the Central Parlor's restoration and we think you will agree when we say it was worth the wait!

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.
