“Unable to gain entrance”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

Visited on a Saturdy afternoon, had checked website and should have been open. No answer to door, rang and knocked and tried Gift shop entrance- locked.
Went to visitor centre,they tried phoning as it was supposed to be open, no reply.
Sure it's lovely inside but they need to work on their signage if going to close randomly.

“Beautiful Italianate Mansion!”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 via mobile

Make sure you visit the Latimer home when in Wilmington. It is a well preserved example of Italianate architecture. The story of the family and their lifestyle was also interesting. Make sure to ask about the missing Salon crown moulding!:) guide was pleasant and helpful. Tours are given on the half hour.

“Beautiful House, Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We toured this beautiful home on a Tuesday morning and were the only two on the tour. The mansion was gorgeous and the guide knowledgeable. She provided a lively family history of a house that contained many period treasures.
