Belmont estate and gardens [Pictures]
Baltimore-born Corinne Melchers was somewhat of a muse for her artist husband, Gari Melchers. Upon his death, she bequeathed their home, known as Belmont, to the state of Virginia to preserve his artwork as well as the beautiful grounds of the estate. Belmont will be featured as part of the 80th Virginia Historic Garden Week.
