Belle Mont Mansion is an excellent example of Jeffersonian style architecture of the early American Republic. It was constructed in 1828 and is known for its high quality brickwork and contrasting wood trim. Today, it is owned by the Alabama Historical Commission and is one of only five state-owned historic homes. It is furnished with period antiques from the Tennessee Valley and a number of portraits and other items original to the Isaac Winston family, who once owned the plantation.
