Why we choose the Bellamy Mansion Museum:
Over the course of its 150 years, the Bellamy has seen many stories: the story of its creators, two Yankee architects; the story of its builders, mostly slave laborers; and the story of the city that it is in, Wilmington. Surpassed as North Carolina’s largest city by Charlotte during the early twentieth century, Wilmington stands today as a center for cultural heritage and exploration. The Bellamy Mansion tells the story of its owners, a wealthy family with deep roots in the low country of the South, who lived and loved in the house for nearly eighty-five years, and of the innovation in its design, with domestic arrangements and technological achievements considered cutting-edge at the time.
Ultimately, the most compelling story that the Bellamy tells today is one of the power of place, and the impact of preservation. When the last surviving child, Ellen Bellamy, passed away in 1946, the house was already falling into a state of disrepair. Although long-heralded as an architectural gem of the South, and unparalleled in its magnificence of scale, passers-by frequently commented on the lack of paint, and the poor state of the outbuildings.
In the end, is the Bellamy Mansion truly haunted by spirits of the past, or are the stories simply products of active imaginations set free in the 157-year-old antebellum house? Join us and find out!
