What you'll do

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.
