It was a very informative tour, got a really good feel for "Urban" antebellum life. There are a LOT of stairs so wear very comfortable shoes and pray for cloud cover, luckily we had temps in the low 70s (In January, no less). Summer temps with humidity could be a bit uncomfortable, still, a must see if in the downtown... More

The Bellamy Mansion should be on everyone's must-see list when in Wilmington. The house itself is gorgeous, and the history behind it is fascinating! The tour began with a very interesting film in the visitor's center. The film told about the history of the Bellamy family and how the house came to be built. It provided excellent context for what... More

I remember in the 90s I helped my x girl friend on a archaeological dig around the grounds.Found some cool stuff and the place looks a whole lot better since then. This place is a great educational site on Wilmington's local history.

Our guide, Leslie, made this wonderful historic house come alive for us. The way she described the lives of the people who lived there made you feel like a part of the family. You could almost hear the footsteps of the children who lived there years ago.

My wife and I took the Bellamy Mansion tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It is supposed to be a one hour tour but it was a slow day so it was just the guide and the two of us so it was very personal. We had lots of questions and he took his time answering. The tour... More

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.

There were only a few people waiting..Staff were helpful as we bought our tickets ($30 for all three of us) and watched a short video before starting our tour.

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!
