Christmas at Belmont Hall

Get into the holiday spirit by visiting historic Belmont Hall on Sunday Dec. 9 from 1 – 4

Belmont Hall will not only be celebrating the magical arrival of Christmas but, also, the 250th Anniversary of the town of Smyrna.

The house will be decorated for the season with decorations, trees, and greens that were inspired by the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries!


Children are welcome and will enjoy meeting Santa Claus and having a photo taken with the jolly old elf!  They can listen to readings of “The Night Before Christmas” in the Victorian Room.  Period tree ornaments can be made to hang on their Christmas trees.

Civil War reenactors will, also, be in the Victorian Room.  Ask them questions and find out what it was like to be on a battle field at Christmas during the Civil War!


Tom Welch will be there as Allen McLane, a Revolutionary War figure from Smyrna who visited Thomas Collins’ home, Belmont Hall, many times.  Allen McLane will tell you about his life and his adventures in the Revolutionary War.

Wassail and cookies will be served.

Admission:    $3 for adults         $1 for K-12 graders

Weddings, Showers, Parties! 

Historic Belmont Hall is a beautiful and unforgettable place to have a wedding.  We have a romantic Sunken Garden for wedding ceremonies and the lovely grounds and gardens are an exceptional site for a tented reception.

Small ceremonies and receptions can be held in the house, as well.  Due to the need to preserve the historic house and due to the size of the house we must limit the number of people in the house to 50 or less.  If you want all of the guests in one room the number would be smaller.

 We can have weddings on weekdays and weekends this spring, summer and fall of 2019!   We have some weekends open but are filling up quickly.  If you are interested in using Belmont Hall as your venue for a 2020 wedding ceremony and/or wedding reception, it is not too early to contact us!

Our staff would gladly email you information on rentals for ceremonies, receptions, parties, showers, or meetings.   A tour of the house and grounds can be arranged and we will meet with you to discuss your rental possibilities.

Just  email us at  or call 302-264-9048!


Meetings, Conferences, Showers and Parties!

If you would like to have a meeting, conference, or party during the week or on weekends we have openings for 2019.  Check for availability.
