This restored mansion is stunning, The urban slave quarters are well preserved and give a unique perspective to life in the 1860's. The docents are friendly and very informative. There are guided tours as well as audio tours available.

My family, including my 4 yr old grandson enjoyed a wonderful experience touring the immense historic mansion during the christmas season. It was beautifully decorated with several christmas trees some with trains chugging around them. Very friendly environment and staff.

I enjoy hearing the historical stories of Wilmington, and Bellamy Mansion is part of that. There is even a fountain from the original property in the middle of Market Street! One can volunteer to become a docent, and I have a friend who did that......More

If you only have time to visit one historical home in Wilmington, make sure it is the Bellamy Mansion. A great tour guide with tons of information about the home and the City. Good value for the cost.

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.

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.
