I learned more about the culture and history of Wilmington and the south pre and post Civil War through the compelling narrative of the Bellamy family history as told by the most knowledgeable docent, than through any textbook. We walked away with a true feel of this part of history from the perspective of the planter, his family, the freed... More

We really enjoyed the hour tour, there is just so much\ history here about the Civil War, enslaved slaves and how they became free. Beautiful home and grounds and the slave quarters are probably the best kept that we have ever seen as in they have been restored. There is not much furniture on the inside but there are 5... More

Easy to find, very nicely restored 1861 mansion with many original features still intact. Very good guide. Especially interesting because the Bellamy name is very well known locally.

Worth seeing on a summer afternoon. Interesting history and the mansion's role during the Civil War. Wear comfortable shoes.

The Bellamy Mansion is one of Wilmington's three historic homes that are open to the public. The tour includes a short video that gives background history. I highly recommend taking one of the guided tours, but self-guided tours are also available. There are not many furnishings in the house, but the stories of the house and the family are memorable....

Visited the mansion today but was not extremely impressed. My opinion, the visit wasn't worth the price. The walk ways did have some beautiful sea shells.

This is a great civil war era historical site. The NC preservation group has done a great job restoring and maintaining this property. Although there is still much to do in the furnishing area, the house and grounds are wonderful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She made the tour memorable.
