Belmont Mansion, also known as Acklen Hall, and originally known as Belle Monte, Belle Mont or Belmont, is a historic mansion located in Nashville, Tennessee. It was built by Joseph and Adelicia Acklen to serve as the center of their 180-acre summer estate in what was then country outside the city, and featured elaborate gardens and a zoo. They lived much of the rest of the year on her plantations in Louisiana.

The estate was sold in the late 19th century and since 1890 has been used for educational functions. It was first used as a girls academy, then as the first building of what became Belmont College and now Belmont University. Today it is operated as a museum. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

  • The people there are very knowledgeable. A little pricey but I can see why. The home, the articles inside, everything looked amazing. Definitely a place I will visit again.
  • The private tour was well worth it... our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Private tour was 1 hour. The mansion itself is an interesting glimpse into a wealthy woman's life in the early 19th century. Highly recommend!
