This is a must see for anyone who is interested in history. The home is beautifully restored and our tour guide really knew his stuff and brought the history of the house alive for us.

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 have been less crowded. Regardless, I highly recommend this site as a way of appreciating how much thought and work went into the design and construction of a building of this nature. It's a great place to take some great photos and learn something along the way.

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.

Started by watching a short film, then had an informative guided tour. Very interesting and the house is very beautiful.

Throughly enjoyed our guided tour thru most of the mansion, seeing how life during the Civil War must have appeared. Beautiful lawn and upkeep of an incredible era.
