The Bellamy Mansion Museum of History and Design Arts/ Kenan Memorial Fountain
This picture shows both the mansion and the fountain. The Bellamy Mansion is a fully restored antebellum home in the Greek/Italian Revival Style by James Post. The mansion was built by slaves between 1859-61. Dr. John Bellamy was a prominent Wilmington planter and his home also served as the Union Army's military headquarters toward the end of the American Civil War.

The Kenan Memorial Fountain was designed by Carrere and Hastings of New York, and was donated to the city by William Kenan in 1921 as a memorial to his parents.

Address: Intersection of Market and 5th.
