Belmont is located on Bolingbroke Creek, off the Choptank River, on Chancellors Point Road, 2.4 miles south of Barber, Talbot County.  Belmont was constructed by William Hughlett of Jamaica Point (see Jamaica Point).  It is a classic Ante-Bellum house.  Belmont is distinguished by its widow’s walk cupola.  A wealthy man from his banking, lumber and shipbuilding enterprises, Hughlett also built two other homes as well as Chancellors Point where he died (see Belmont, Chancellors Point, Cherry Grove, Ingleside and Jamaica Point).
