Main Street

-A A +A

Belmont's main street is a mix of old and new. The most intact historic facade is that of a former brick-faced bank building. Next to it are the ruins of two saloons—a mangled mass of stone, wood, and corrugated metal. At the end of Main Street, where the road curves south, is a large stone house with a two-story porch and side ell. A road veering north from Main Street is lined with small stone houses and ruins and a wooden water tank. The other end of Main Street has some modern houses, trailers, and the Belmont Saloon, a one-story, wood-frame structure composed of parts of old buildings, including a bar from a collapsed hotel down the street. Near the entrance to the town are the ruins of the Belmont-Monitor Mill, its square smokestack visible from the road. Main Street passes through town, then heads up a hill toward two of Belmont's three surviving mills.
