- The Gari Melchers Home, also known as Belmont, is a National Historic Landmark and historic house museum at 226 Washington Street in Falmouth, Virginia.

It was given to the state of Virginia by his widow, and is now administered by the University of Mary Washington. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965, commemorating Melcher's influential role in bringing American art to European attention.
