Mitä teet

Enjoy 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 European contributions, the railroad, the Civil War, and World War II. We will conclude with the decline and subsequent revitalization of downtown. The 2.25 mile tour usually takes a little over 1hr and 30 mins to complete.
Other things to note
Summers are hot and humid! Your experience will be outdoors, so bring water, sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and an inquisitive mind! We do not enter any houses. In the event of bad weather, tours may be postponed, rescheduled, or canceled. My schedule is flexible, message to inquire about specific dates and times.

JR most definitely knows his history of Wilmington! He kept talking and kept us moving for the whole tour. I appreciated that he was thoughtful of our needs such as providing a bathroom break and a water break during the tour.

J.R. is a fantastic, knowledgeable guide and storyteller of Wilmington history. Since I happened to have a solo tour, he asked me what I already knew about Wilmington and what I would be interested to learn through the tour. That was really considerate of him! I also appreciated his mid-guide water break. We walked on an overcast day with brief episodes of drizzle, so do be prepared for any changes in the weather. As we walked and J.R. pointed out different historical elements along the way, J.R. showed me how the ground I walked on and the places I saw have transformed and (in some cases) have been preserved.
