This house has beautiful authentic wood working. The best part is the enthusiasm of the guides and the fascinating tales they told. They were even interested in my experiences about working at a historical fort where Jefferson Davis serviced in Wisconsin. It made it very personal

I take adult out of town guests to Bellevue regularly. It is a wonderful glimpse into the upper crust life of a small southern town a L-O-N-G time ago. The host/hostess on duty is always well informed and can make the tour interesting. It is not for little people who will not submit to staying in the arms of an... More

This was a very enjoyable tour along with the family history. It is well worth your time and you are also close to Pine Mountain and Callaway Gardens.

The $5 entry gives one entry to early southern history in which a poor farmer's son can attend college and become a national statesman; he can marry a city socialite and show her family she did just fine in marrying him; and he can build a beautiful home which becomes a testament to the American dream and is now on...

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.
