You ring the old-time bell to enter. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and personable. The restoration is on-going and well done. The furniture beautiful. The focus of this tour is life, the people, the home, the furniture.

The home and the tour were really nice. Our guide was very informative and gave great insight of the home when the original family lived there.

The house is currently undergoing restoration downstairs with the faux painting of the times. A very interesting house to see. Different than the other two nearby.

My wife and I went to Myrtle Beach for vacation and drove up to Wilmington (about an hour drive) and ended staying for two days. We bought the 3 home pass and saw the Latimer House, the Bellemy Mansion, and the Burgwin-Wright House. If you like history each of these homes offers a great experience. Make sure that you take the guided tour as the docents fill in all of the little facts the make this house truly unique.

We went on a tour here while visiting Wilmington. Our tour guide was excellent, very nice and knowledgeable! The home is huge and beautiful and had many of the original items dating back to the 1800's. The whole tour took an hour and was well worth the money!! If you like history, you'll love this place!
