A lovely morning is spent in the Gardens at Belmont where Debby Klein has an opportunity to talk to Beate Jensen about her responsibilities as Grounds Preservation Supervisor. Follow the progress of work being done to restore Belmont to the days of Gari and Corinne Melchers on CRRL Presents, a Central Rappahannock Regional Library production.
Alum Spring Park is a 34-acre woodland retreat off Greenbriar Drive with a playground and hiking trails. Its sandstone cliff, also known as the Alum Spring Rock, is 400 feet long and 40 feet high.
In 1916, Gari Melchers, an internationally famous painter, purchased the Belmont estate in Falmouth, Virginia. With the exception of some European travel in the 1920s, he made this his permanent home during the last decades of his life. Area residents and visitors are privileged to be able to visit this gem of a museum which combines a glimpse of the artist's home life as well as a tour of his studio.
