True to the time.

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...

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!

My husband and I went for a tour of this beautiful home to finish the series of three, (Burgwin-Wright and Bellamy Mansion, respectively), and it did not disappoint. Our tour guide, Marcia, was very knowledgeable about the family and all descendants, as well as etiquette for the Victorian era. She went into lots of detail about the furniture, artwork, period...

A beautiful old home built in the 1850's and used by the Latimer family and now run by the Wilmington Historical Society this home is one of many beautiful old homes that dot the streets.Walk the three or four streets up from the river and towards the bridge and you will see many great old homes.

Make sure you get the 3 house package deal, the lady that gave us the tour was very into this house, and you could tell she really enjoyed sharing the history of this house.

The Latimer House is truly a unique historic mansion - and you get a wonderful, up-close look (no ropes) at the home and the furnishings (including period clothing, family photographs, and even funeral jewelry!). The Docents (tour guides) relate fascinating details about the home's construction, the architecture, the Latimer family history, and the history of Wilmington during their lives. You'll... More

Although we turned up slightly late the guide allowed us to join in and catch up with the other couple so please note it's best to book ahead! There were lots of rooms to look at and the history behind each room and the family themselves was fascinating.
