Step Into History
Welcome to the Bellamy Mansion Museum, one of North Carolina's most spectacular examples of antebellum architecture. Located in downtown Wilmington, the mansion, carriage house, and original slave quarters comprise a complete site where visitors hear not only the stories of the Bellamy family, but those of the free and enslaved black artisans who built the home on the eve of the Civil War, and those of the enslaved workers who resided on property.
The property now serves as a museum of history and the design arts, offering daily tours and many dynamic educational and cultural programs throughout the year. Tour the magnificent 10,000-square-foot home, visit the
meticulously-recreated gardens, and walk through the
restored slave quarters, one of very few preserved urban
slave quarters in the country.
