Abstract:
Although architect James F. Post did most of the planning, family sources indicate inspiration for the design of the Bellamy Mansion came from Dr. John D. Bellamy's eldest daughter, Mary Elizabeth. The home was built in 1859-61. Mary also had input in furniture and fabric selections and created a number of oil paintings for the walls. Forced to flee Wilmington during the Civil War and the Union occupation, the family was able to enjoy their home only after the Yankees went home.
