This tour was surprisingly different from the usual "Southern Plantation" although it is also a pre-Civil War mansion. Belmont Mansion is situated in the middle of Belmont College and incorporates the old with the new. The mansion itself is renovated as donations allow but that does not take away from the charm of the building. In fact, the way the intended changes are displayed provides a visual of the changes the mansion has incurred through the years. Although the building, it's furnishings and the grounds are beautiful, the more interesting part of the tour was learning about the original owner, Adelicia Acklen. She was truly a woman ahead of her time. If she were alive today she would be the CEO of a large corporation. Well worth the visit!
