Had looked forward to touring the historic homes in Wilmington; but sadly the Bellamy Mansion is the only one open on Sunday.
The intro film was interesting; but when we got ready for the tour, we were told the docent hadn't showed up. So for the admission price we were handed a sheet of paper to read about each floor of the house & slave quarter. The descriptions were minimal and hopefully the docent would have had more information. There were almost no furnishings in the house. Even if it had been reproductions, it would have been more interesting furnished.
Having toured numerous historic homes, sadly this was one of the most disappointing.
