We drove a long way out of our way to visit Belle Mont, only to find it closed and gated on the Wednesday we visited in season (June). I suggest that to call ahead before going there to see what their hours are.

The site was run by the state of Alabama and has been de-funded. We happened upon it while the director was running a photo shoot. Maybe the town of Florence could bring it under it's wonderful tourism umbrella.....hint, hint!

What a unique style house to find in Alabama and very detailed restoration is still ongoing. CHristmas open houses have been popular there and I have attended several.. If you like house museums you will enjoy visiting this one.
