“Beautiful House, Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

We toured this beautiful home on a Tuesday morning and were the only two on the tour. The mansion was gorgeous and the guide knowledgeable. She provided a lively family history of a house that contained many period treasures.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Went to see the house on free day. Pretty good but the guide seemed very nervous. Other then that, history lovers will like this one.

“Walking tours”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Historical walking tours of the downtown Wilmington area are offered by volunteers. They follow similar routes but each volunteer has different specialty areas making the tours similar but not identical.

“Interesting house located on the corner of Orange and Third”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

The Zebulon Latimer House is a must-see in Wilmington, NC. The home is full of artifacts collected during the Latimers’ stay in the house. So much history is contained in this house on the corner of Orange and 3rd. All rooms are furnished and clean. In addition to the appearance, the guides know so much about each section of the home. This ensures that you will learn something on the tour. The Zebulon Latimer House is certainly worth your money. A tour takes approximately one hour. If you go, you must ask your guide why there is no crown molding in any of the rooms.
