Belle Mont Mansion (circa 1828) was built for Dr. Alexander Mitchell, an early settler of Scottish heritage. The house was later owned by the Isaac Winston family. It is one of Alabama’s most significant Federal period homes, the design influenced by Thomas Jefferson. Belle Mont is a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission, operated by the Colbert County Historical Landmarks Foundation.
The festival is made possible by funding from the Alabama Council of the Arts, The Daniel Foundation, Alabama Humanities Alliance and the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area. Additional sponsors and patrons are sought. Any profit will be applied to festival continuity and to the preservation of historic Belle Mont and its museum operations.
