Bellemont Manor, with seven unique guest quarters, was built by George E. and Clark Belle Dean in 1928. The 30-room structure is inspired by Mrs. Dean's childhood home in Vermont. After George E. Dean's death in 1932, Belle Dean and W. Clark Dean and his family lived in the Manor. After Belle Dean's death in 1961, Clark presented the Manor to Albion College at Homecoming in November of 1962. Mr. Dean passed away in Florida in June of 1980.
Original furnishings were left in the house, which illustrate the style the Manor was decorated when it was built. The Persian rugs and the beautiful grandfather clock are some of the notable items that adorn the interior of the Manor. Today, Bellemont Manor is utilized as a conference center for Albion College with lodging accommodations. Meal service and meeting space can be provided for up to 75 people.
