Historic Wilmington NC Real Estate & Downtown Wilmington Homes

Wilmington, North Carolina is home to an historic downtown area featuring streets surrounded by enormous oaks and Victorian style architecture in both the homes and the churches of the downtown area. This famed district is composed of 230 blocks, showcasing mansions, historic tombs and numerous landmarks. If you enjoy a romantic evening, take a horse-drawn carriage or trolley tour of the rich downtown area after relishing in the cuisine at one of the many fine-dining restaurants located on the waterfront. For a day out with the kids, take one of the walking tours available, hosted by Wilmington natives, whose enthusiasm and love for their hometown spotlights many of the available attractions. The Bellamy Mansion is a featured highlight in the downtown area and is often used to host weddings. Constructed prior to the start of the Civil War, this historic home in Wilmington is a showcase of antebellum structural design. Following the siege and capture of Fort Fisher, federal troops utilized the mansion as a primary staging point for their operations. The Bellamy Mansion now contains a museum, preserving the history of the Wilmington and its celebrated artisans.

Stepping further into the folklore of North Carolina, prepare for a more adventurous exploration of history with the ghosts of Wilmington. Find out more about these mysterious individuals, their lives, and their lingering presence in our world today. The Ghost Walk of Old Historic Wilmington and the Haunted Pub Crawl offer mysterious and exciting nights of fun. With nearly 275 years of history, streets and alleyways, it's only natural that such an intriguing business has been built on the city's captivating past, the people who have spent their entire lives there, and the homes they have left behind. Travel through St. James graveyard to pay respects and an ear to those who still occupy their final resting places. Tread carefully through Gallows Hill to investigate the many trapped souls who have yet to resolve their wrong-doings. Even Bellamy Mansion has a few surprises to offer. It's a fun way to learn about the history of the area in a mystifying environment that captures the respect and wonder of the living.

There are two sightseeing opportunities to be had aboard the majestic riverboat, Henrietta III, which features a lunch cruise while educating on the Intracoastal Waterway in the greater Wilmington area. The cruises host many special occasions and display the fine qualities of world-renowned southern hospitality. Succulent seafood cuisine awaits as you travel down the Cape Fear River. If you're lucky, you may catch sight of the famous Battleship North Carolina. Take a trip to Topsail Beach and see if you can unearth a piece of the Blackbeard's treasure; the pirate was known to have stashed his many treasures along the coastline.
