Gari Melchers Home and Studio, formerly known as the Belmont Museum and begun in the 1790s, embraces the home, gardens and studio of figure painter Gari Melchers (1860-1932), who was renowned in his day but to whose reputation time has not been particularly kind. The place was deeded to Virginia in 1942 by the artist's widow, Corinne Melchers, and is administered by Mary Washington College. The estate, an accredited museum, is maintained as the Melchers modified and decorated it, and includes the largest collection of the artist's works anywhere, along with a notable array of eclectic knickknacks.
