Bellevue, a stately antebellum home, was built between 1852 and 1855 by Benjamin Harvey Hill for his wife, Caroline Holt Hill. It is a significant example of the “domesticated temple” form of Greek Revival-style architecture popular in the antebellum South. Many dignitaries, including Confederate President Jefferson Davis, were entertained there.

Located in historic downtown LaGrange, Georgia, Bellevue became the home of the LaGrange Woman’s Club in 1942 when the Fuller E. Callaway Foundation presented the home to the club. Bellevue is a National Historic Landmark.

INSIDER TIPS

  • As you explore Bellevue, remember that it was once a 1,200 acre plantation estate!
  • When the estate was larger, Bellevue’s gates were located on Broad Street. The gates were removed in 1905 to convert the carriage drive to a residential street (now Ben Hill Street).
  • These gateposts now reside at LaGrange College. Interestingly, the gates are identical to the gates at The White House in Washington D.C. because they were ordered from the same catalog.
