I recently visited the Latimer House on a class field trip. The staff was incredibly informative and engaging, and the house was beautifully maintained. If you are into history, whether you are visiting or a Wilmington local, I would suggest checking out this historic house!

We've made a habit of going to Wilmington for this tour every year for the past several years. The homes on tour are different each year, but usually include at least one church and the historic Latimer House. It's always fun, and the homes and gardens are beautiful and sometimes surprising. There are always interesting stories about the histories of... More

We had our wedding reception here in 1998. Lovely historic home with tons of charm and character. The gardens are gorgeous! A must see when in historic downtown Wilmington.

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: You will have to park on the street. The Bellamy Mansion is the only house on the passport that... More

The tour guide began with an apology that he hadn't led tours in over a year because he didn't have time. He went through the motions of the tour, but lacked the energy and enthusiasm that we have experienced at other historic sites. I learned more about the Latimer house from a book (Ghosts of Wilmington) than I did from... More

It is a very nice home and our tour guide (Marti) did a wonderful job of giving us all the details. I was one of 4 in the tour and I liked it being a small group. We had lots of time to ask questions. I do recommend this home -- well worth the visit.

We were there for an art exhibit and had the opportunity to tour and learn a little of the man from Connecticut who first lived there. It is furnished and gives you a good idea of life in those times. Worth taking the tour. It has been refinished beautifully outside.

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