We were a little late for the last tour of the day, so was not aware that we could take pictures, as the previous house didn't allow that we assumed we couldn't take them at this one either. Loved the gasoliers, the stories about the children playing and the key that turned off the lights in the upstairs at night.... More

This was a beautiful Civil War Era Home with many surprises. The grounds were beautiful and the home was spectacular. We both enjoyed this experience of stepping back in time for an afternoon and hope to one day go back.

The tour included information on how the house was made, crediting slaves for the incredible workmanship that went into the house (money went to slave owners). Our docent, Wade Toth, answered everyone's questions, and is presentation was right on!

Beth gave us a private tour. Very informative and lots of history. Took about an hour to get through the house and the old slave quarters. Would recommend seeing this if you're in Wilmington.

I was in Wilmington visting friends and we went to the Bellamy Mansion for a guided tour. We were part of a group of about 12 tourists. We had a great tour guide (Wade) who was very knowledgeable and had a good story voice to describe the history and daily life of Wilmington and the surrounding area. The Mansion does... More

The docents were very informative of the buildings located in an urban setting, the family and the times of the Civil War. Wilmington, NC is proud of this beautiful home.

Beautiful 4 story home built in the late 1890s that is well worth seeing especially if you like that period decor.

Well as historic mansion tours go, this one is just average. Although restored it is not in very good shape. Lots more restoration and upkeep is needed. Furnishings are not original and one doesn't get the sense that it was really lived in. But then a few years after it was built it was occupied by the Union Army and... More
