Belle Mont Mansion

1569 Cook Lane, Tuscumbia, AL 35674, USA

Magnificently sited on a commanding hilltop, Belle Mont is one of early Alabama's crowning architectural achievements. It is also one of the outstanding Palladian-style houses in the Deep South. Mystery shrouds the source of the design, but tantalizing clues suggest the direct influence of President and gentleman architect Thomas Jefferson. Rescued from ruin in the 1980s, it is now undergoing a phased-restoration.
