It was suggested we go down to 3rd and Market St. and park our car to take a leisurely stroll through this great historic district. I took pictures of every home that had a historical sign next to it. There must have been some rich people there in the day, The homes are beautiful, though not all are grand, like the Bellamy Mansion. We also investigated the 1808 First Baptist Church, The 1839 St James Episcopal Church, The 1875 Temple of Israel and the 1875 St Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church. At noon and 5pm all four churches set loose their chimes and it is a beautiful symphony to be there to hear them. Unlike many cities none of these churches were open to be seen inside, kind of a shame. The homes range from 1847 forward and have varying amounts of ornamentation, all are worth a look. It was a great walk through the historical area of Wilmington.
