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.

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.
