Visit to Belcourt

Jim Buttrick set up a tour of Belcourt as an outing for a group of interested JHS members.  As you can see from the pictures it was fascinating. From Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont’s bedroom right off the baronial ballroom to the linenfold wainscotting in the library created by Alva Vanderbilt Belmont to replace the passageway for the horses to reach their once palatial stables.  Look for more outings in the future and join us.
