National Mosaic Tile Company

Walter Bellingrath purchases the National Mosaic Tile Company. The firm produced Adamantile, a line of decorative cement floor tiles. The distinctive patterns were created when  colored concrete was poured into design moulds and then compressed into 7″ square tiles. Visitors to the Bellingrath Home see examples of this product throughout the floors of the kitchen areas and porches on the first floor. The tile, known locally as “Bellingrath tile,” can still be seen in several landmark buildings in downtown Mobile, including the Saenger Theatre and the History Museum of Mobile.
