The Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens is the oldest and largest historic site in downtown Wilmington. There are eight colonial structures left in Wilmington, four on this property: three ballast stone buildings, circa 1744, once the city jail of Wilmington, and the 1770 house. Marvel at the Georgian architecture and get a glimpse of what life was like in Wilmington before the Revolutionary War. All rooms have been restored to regional 1770 colors and are furnished with 18th century antiques. We will arrive in Wilmington early so that you’ll have time to walk the beautiful Wilmington waterfront to shop and sit down for a nice lunch before our tour at 2 p.m. Lunch on your own. We may stop at Trader Joe’s on the way home if that’s the wish of our travelers! Departure time 9:30 a.m. Activity Level 4.
