Although we turned up slightly late the guide allowed us to join in and catch up with the other couple so please note it's best to book ahead! There were lots of rooms to look at and the history behind each room and the family themselves was fascinating.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaged. The house has a full variety of examples of lifestyle to include a prison. Especially impressed with example of Longleaf Pine wood.

I recently visited the Latimer House on a class field trip. The staff was incredibly informative and engaging, and the house was beautifully maintained. If you are into history, whether you are visiting or a Wilmington local, I would suggest checking out this historic house!

There are always interesting stories about the histories of... More

We had our wedding reception here in 1998. Lovely historic home with tons of charm and character. The gardens are gorgeous! A must see when in historic downtown Wilmington.
