Interesting 19th C. home of a leading Wilmington family

The home is maintained as a nonprofit by local historians, who do give an interesting tour of the several floors, and small backyard garden.

Very nice tour and our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The house and furnishings, along with personal items of the family, were unique and well preserved. Purchase as part of the three house ticket for a better value.

This is one of 3 historic home tours open in Wilmington. It was my favorite of the three. Each house had a good history and the Docent was able to give good history of the families who lived there, and also history of the times. The people putting the Latimer home together took time to put the home back together... More

This is the home of the Historical Society of the Lower Cape Fear. Walking in the front door and down the hall on the left wall are 2 portraits, Susannah Mabson and Thomas Hill. They are my 6th great grandparents. Lots of genealogy and historical books. I also found some of my cousins research. The lady who helped me was... More

Since the 2 other houses included in the $24 passport ticket are closed on Monday, we decided to visit the Latimer House on a Monday when the upper 2 floors were not accessible due to a malfunction in the house's air conditioning system. We still, however, had a very interesting and informative tour of the lower 2 levels which made... More

This is the third historic home we visited on a pass for three homes. Again, the guide was most knowledgeable. If you like architecture and history, would recommend the pass as all three homes are distinctly different and interesting.

We enjoyed this very much. Didn't have time for the 3 house package tour. So we picked this one because it was recommended as having the most original furniture. Every room had beautiful furniture and there were dresses to see in one of the bedrooms. Guide was a little rusty from the slow winter months, but he got the important... More

So much of the original house was still there.... untouched... small details not usually found in such historical homes. Worth the time to visit for sure

We had an excellent tour conducted by a most knowledgeable docent. We thought there wasn't going to be much of interest in the home but we were so wrong! I would recommend a tour of this house to anyone interested in history!
