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.

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
