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.
