This is a chronological, walking tour of old Wilmington. I will share with you facts about the founding families and the architectural beauty preserved in their historic homes which line these brick streets. We will also discuss the social and economic implications which shaped the Port City including African American, Jewish, and Eastern European contributions, the Wilmington-Weldon Railroad, the Civil War, and World War II. We will conclude with the decline and subsequent revitalization of downtown. The 2.5 mile tour takes an average of 1hr 15 mins to complete.

Our tour will start at 1 Market St by the Visitors Center on the Riverwalk. I'll be standing underneath the flag pole. We will discuss many historic places and events including: Burgwin-Wright, Latimer, Mitchell-Anderson houses, Dudley, Murchison, & Bellamy Mansions, and the 1898 Race Riots.

We are so glad that we booked this Airbnb experience with J.R. He is a masterful storyteller with an avid desire to study history etc. Plus, he was thoughtful enough to carter the tour to our own personal interests and geographic backgrounds. 10/10 would recommend booking a tour with J.R. We learned so much! And it's a great "socially distanced" activity to help kickstart your vacation.
