WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Two historic landmarks here in the Cape Fear region are getting some national attention. According to USA TODAY, Bellamy Mansion and Thalian Hall in Wilmington are buildings you must see in North Carolina.
USA TODAY Travel teamed up with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to create the list of the best buildings for visitors to check out in each state.
Located in downtown Wilmington, Thalian Hall has had the unique responsibility of serving as both the area’s cultural and political center since the 1850s.
