Nashville is situated in the direct path of the 2017 total solar eclipse and a great place to witness this lifetime event. To celebrate this celestial happening we will be hosting a family friendly viewing party that offers educational fun for a variety of ages. Festivities will include historic crafts on the grounds and an exhibit featuring a timeline of solar events witnessed by the owners and workers who called Belle Meade home. The official viewing area will be located on the front lawn of the Belle Meade Mansion and participants will be offered eclipse viewing glasses while supplies last. Total eclipse expected at 1:28 p.m. Community members interested in this event may Click Here to purchase a Grounds Experience Ticket.
