First of all everyone should get the "Passport:, we only visited two of the mansions but would have gone to all 3 if we had known about the passport. Bellamy was certainly interesting but seemed a little empty. The narrators are well spoken and very informative. I went with friends who enjoyed the tour as much as I did. The... More

This amazing preserved mansion was completed just before the Civil War & still has the slave quarters behind it- a rare find in a city. The moldings, included the gilded cornices, are something to behold. The owner built his fortune on turpentine plantations inland, a valued naval commodity for the times. It was neglected for years but has been restored... More

My husband and I love going to places with history. When we found out that adults can purchase a passport to see The Latimer House, Bellamy Mansion, and Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens for $24 (each) we were on board. PLEASE NOTE: Bellamy Mansion is the only house on the passport that has parking; it’s on the side of the house.... More

For $10 you got a guided tour throughout the house and grounds and could stay as long as you wanted afterwards to take pictures or further explore! I really enjoyed our tour guide; house is really nice!

Wish I could vote somewhere between "average" and "very good." Of our family, my 9 year old daughter was most impressed by this tour. To me, it was kind of just a nice, big house. I'm glad we went, but I wouldn't call it a "must see." Admission was reasonable (just over $20 for our family of 4), so that... More

Very well done! Great Tour Guide (I think his name was Jim). Very knowledgeable. Handled history of slavery in a way that was respectful and honored the slaves that built the house. Beautiful home. Recommend this stop in Wilmington.

A story that's definitely worth hearing. The history and craftsmanship alone will leave you in complete awe. This little gem is much more than a elegant location to hold a wedding, simply beautiful.

We attended the opening reception of the local Cape Fear Camera Club's "Images Of Fine Distinction" which are currently on exhibit until near the end of August, 2015. The history and the architecture make the visit worthwhile. There are not a lot of furnishings which actually helps to keep the rooms from feeling crowded.
