An enjoyable experience with our knowledgeable, gentleman guide, Fred. He was passionate about the history of Belleview and proud of this historical landmark. I learned a great deal of fascinating history with him as he guided us through the mansion. I highly recommend a visit to La Grange and Belleview.

Outstanding tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the house the Civil War and the community of Lagrange. Don't miss this site. The only negative could be their hours are limited but it was possible to visit here and the Hill and Dales Estate in the same afternoon. HIGHLY recommend visiting here

We toured the Bellevue estate on April 11th when the grounds were green and the weather was beautiful. Our hosts not only gave us the history of the place and the area, but a personalized guided tour of the home as well. Worth the time the visit this local gem, only $5.

Lovely home on its own but the provided history made Benjamin H. Hill "come alive" for... More

I recommend this home tour for a very enjoyable and historical view of early life in LaGrange. Our host was most hospitable and enlightened us with a delightful tour. The home is sometimes closed for special events and when I called he offered us an afternoon tour. Since this is common on the weekend I'd advice you call ahead. Don't... More
