Adelicia Hayes was born in 1817 to a prominent Nashville family. At age 22, she married Isaa c Franklin, 28 years her senior. During their seven years of marriage, they had four childre n, all of whom died by age eleven. Mr. Franklin?s death in 1846 left Adelicia an estate valu ed at one million dollars which included 8,700 acres of cotton plantations in Louisiana; ?Fai rvue?, a 2,000 acre farm in Tennessee; 38,000 acres in Texas; stocks, bonds, and 750 slaves . In 1849 Adelicia married Joseph Acklen from Huntsville, Alabama. They began the buildin g of Belmont soon after their marriage and completed it in 1853. Belmont was built in the st yle of an Italian villa set in elaborate gardens with numerous outbuildings. The water tower , still standing, provided irrigation for the gardens and water to fun the fountains. Ther e was a two hundred foot long greenhouse, an art gallery, gazebos, a bowling alley, bear hous e and zoo. Mrs. Acklen opened the estate for the citizens of Nashville, as there was no publ ic park available. In 1859 the Acklens hired Adolphus Heiman to enlarge and remodel Belmont . Enclosing the back porch, he created what architectural historians call the most elaborat e domestic space built in antebellum Tennessee, the Grand Salon. With this addition, Belmon t contained thirty-six rooms with 10,900 square feet of living space and 9,400 square feet o f service area in the basement. The house was filled with fine furniture, paintings, and ori ginal statues by American artists. Four of the five major marble statues remain in the hous e today. GROUP RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.
