The Belmont Land Company was a late 19th company that purchases the 551-acre Belle Mont Estate and developed it into what is now known as the Belmont-Carlton neighborhood. [1]

In 1891, its two vice-presidents were Barrett Bolling and Micajah Woods. They surveyed the area and developed a large subdivision which established the grid-system that makes up southeast Charlottesville. [1] [2]

The company was formed in 1890 in Charlottesville, encouraged by the establishment of the Charlottesville and University Street Railway in 1887. [3]
