Boscobel Heights is close to Belmont University and the Belmont Mansion. The Belmont Mansion was first known as Bellemonte, meaning “beautiful mountain” in Italian. The Belmont Mansion was built in 1850 and owned by Adelicia Acklen, one of the wealthiest women in the South. Tours are given in the ornate Italianate villa, which is furnished with Victorian pieces. The mansion was headquarters for Union General T. J. Wood during the Civil War. Although Adelicia Acklen worked with the Union and Confederate forces, she was able to keep her mansion and her lavish lifestyle. Belmont was sold in 1887. It was then the main building for Belmont Junior College before the school became Belmont University.
