Educational and amazing, then go across the street to the Burgwin Wright House, as well as the Latimer House a few blocks south.

Bellamy Mansion is one of North Carolina's prime examples of antebellum architecture. Walk through the 10,000 square foot house, carriage house, and former slave quarters to take a first hand look at this unique piece of history.
