dt-scncThe Bellamy Mansion in Wilmington, North Carolina is 150 years old, so you know it’s bursting with history and stories to share. It began as home to a wealthy family with deep roots in the South. That family lived in that house for 85 years before it received landmark status. It became a museum in 1994 after years of restoration and repair of the main house and the servants’ quarters.

The museum dedicates itself to sharing the importance of social and architectural history in America. They focus on design arts as well as stories of North Carolina’s rich history.

The Bellamy Mansion hosts tours and features rotating exhibits focused on the family and the house. You can tour the main house, the gardens, the carriage house, and the slave quarters — the slave quarters provide a history of slave treatment in the South.

The Port City Marina is located a mile from the museum on Harnett Street in the heart of downtown Wilmington. Enjoy your walk through downtown before and after the museum. For more information on marina transient space, head here: http://portcitymarina.com/amenities.php.

The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sundays from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. To help plan your visit, the website has all the necessary information: http://www.bellamymansion.org/visit.html.
