Zebulon Latimer was a prosperous Wilmington businessman who married local belle Elizabeth Savage. When they built their 1852 home, they built it in the popular Victorian Italiante style. It was home to three generations of the Latimers until 1963 when the house became an historical museum and home to the Lower Cape Fear Historical Society.Both the interior and exterior of the home closely resemble its original appearance and period furnishings, artwork and portraits of the Latimer family give the house a “lived in” feeling.In the main house, visitors are guided through all 4 floors housing over 600 historic objects for viewing. In the gardens you find the servants quarters as well.
