The tour of the historic mansion is really great. The tour goes through the three levels of the house and there are a lot of original furnishings from the original owner.

So this was right in the heart of Belmont university but a really cool stop. The lady of the house - Adelecia - had a cool story and showed off her money which made the mansion beautiful. If you have time, would recommend the stop.
