  • The fully furnished Latimer House, built in 1852, provides a chance to see upper-class life in Victorian Wilmington. Over 600 historic objects (including furniture, jewelry, ephemera, tableware, tools) can be viewed on guided tours. The tours contain stories about the three generations of the Latimer Family who lived in the 11 rooms, allowing you to step back in time to a more elegant era. This home has a small gift shop, and has housed the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society since 1963. It is also the starting place of the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society Select Saturday Walking Tours-- please call for specific dates and times.
