We were lucky to have Beth for our tour guide. She was friendly, enthusiastic, told a good ghost story. The mansion features wonderful architecture and craftsmanship. A must see in Wilmington.

My favorite part was the amazing magnolia tree next to the house - don’t miss it. We enjoyed seeing this outstanding example of antebellum architecture.

Do not miss the slave quarters. Great architecture and grounds. We had a self guided tour as they were short staffed. Do not miss the great porches.

I love hearing stories of old historic homes and the families that built them. This is a fantastic piece of Wilmington history worth seeing and learning about. Our guide was very knowledgable about everything there. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Wilmington.

There were around 20 people in our tour. The. Guide would start talking about an area before all of the group would get into the room. We were so disappointed that we missed hearing so much of the history of the home.

While guides do walk and talk with larger groups, in order to keep the tour to around an hour, we're certainly sorry to read that you didn't have an optimal experience. We'll pass on your feedback. Thanks.

Our incredibly well-prepared guide gave us the unvarnished story of the extended Bellamy family, and their experiences pre-, during, and post-Civil War, through the tragic 20th century fire, and the current restorations. The house is extraordinary - a plantation-sized, airy, light-filled and brilliantly-designed mansion in...More

I’m sorry, I didn’t retain that information. If you search online, you will find it; $30/ 3 historic houses.

Our tour guide was wonderful and the tour was about two hours but offered great stories and insights to Wilmington during the Civil War era.
