As of Thursday, March 19, the Alabama Historical Commission will act on the recommendations of public health officials and Governor Ivey to implement a plan for social distancing in response to coronavirus and COVID-19. In the interest of public health and safety, the Alabama Historical Commission's main office and select historic sites have been closed to the public since March 16, and all events and programs are cancelled until April 30. The agency will reevaluate by that time. This closure includes Belle Mont Mansion. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you on another occasion.

Positioned on a commanding hilltop, Belle Mont Mansion is one of Alabama's crowning architectural achievements.

Located just outside Tuscumbia in Colbert County, the mansion is one of a few Palladian-style houses in the Deep South. This style stems from the neoclassical architectural design of Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio.

The Alabama Historical Commission owns this historic site. Colbert County Historical Landmarks Foundation, Inc. is the support group in charge of operating the site.

Blue Star Museum: Belle Mont proudly offers free admission to active duty military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
