Belmont-Carlton is a neighborhood in the southeast corner of Charlottesville. It includes Avon Street, Monticello Avenue and Road, Carlton Avenue and Road, Rives Street, and the areas known as Hogwaller, Big Hill, and Coal Bin.
Belmont became attractive as an expansion area for the new city of Charlottesville in the late 19th century due to its location along transportation corridors to the James River and Scottsville. The Three Notched Road led east to Richmond. The Scottsville Road wound along what is now 6th Street E. But it was the development of the 551 acre Belle Mont Estate that let to a grid system that now helps define Belmont's character.
At this time, a portion of the rolling estate was known as the Commons because anyone was allowed to graze their cattle there.
As Belmont began to develop, the target demographic were middle and upper class families who wanted to get away from the bustle of Charlottesville.
