Belle Mont (Isaac Winston House): Built circa 1828 by Dr. Alexander Mitchell, this home exhibits Jeffersonian-Palladian architecture, rare in Alabama. It is thought that Thomas Jefferson or one of his associates influenced its design and its hilltop setting.  The house features a two-story central pavilion with flanking wings embracing a courtyard. Isaac and Catherine Winston acquired the home in 1832 and it remained in this family for many years.

The annual Plantation Christmas at Belle Mont mansion in Tuscumbia, Alabama took place on December 02, 2012.  The event sponsored by the Colbert County Landmarks Foundation is a major fundraise

r for the restoration of this proud home.
