This is a magnificent and extremely well-preserved 19th century home and grounds. A guided tour is included with the admission. Our guide was very informative and many of the unique features of the home would have been lost on us had we toured it on...More

Both beautiful and historic. A glimpse into antebellum war life. Union troops briefly occupied this house as their headquarters during the war. Living history.

The beautiful Bellamy Mansion is open again after the hurricane. Thank you Beth C for a wonderful guided tour following a very well made short film. A must for those interested in 19th Century history of black Americans and the Civil War

Easter 2018 in Wilmington (8 Replies)

I've been looking around to see if there are any plays, concerts, festivals going on while we are there, but it looks like pretty slim pickings, I suppose because it's Easter weekend. Any particular websites I should keep an eye on? We've been down before and have already seen the battleship, Bellamy mansion, and taken a cruise on the Cape Fear River. Any other suggestions? It will be just my husband...More
