Not much to see, not much in the house is original or period. In fact there is a plaque upstairs on one room thanking the residents of Wilmington for donating the items.

Very beautiful home with original period furnishings. It was decorated for Christmas making it even nicer. Guided tour, the lady was very knowledgeable of the history of the home. We were allowed to walk back through it by ourselves after the tour.

This is a great example of antebellum mansions from the 19th century, and is really in excellent condition. The tour guides are very informative, though the group we were in was so large it was difficult to hear. I'm guessing that a weekday visit would...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour of the Bellamy Mansion! Our tour guide, Wade Toth, provided an insight to the mansion that was fascinating. Excellent representation of a civil war mansion and the historic Bellamy family.
