On a cool and drizzly day, my husband and I thought it perfect for a tour of the Belmont Mansion. Nestled among the buildings on the campus of Belmont University sets a superb example of architectural resurrection. High on a hill surrounded by walkways and flowers, once inside we were greeted by a volunteer tour guide. He provided preliminary history about the house. Then handed us over to a young lady with extensive knowledge of family history, and contents of the mansion. It is a marriage among individuals, families, local history, education, and international trade relations. The history of an era is exposed in this family home. Not far from the Vanderbilt University campus, it is well worth your time.
