Two historic houses in Wilmington will jointly present "Hell's Belles and the Colonial Damned" with period inspired haunted houses at each location. 

Those who are brave enough can visit the Burgwin-Wright House and the antebellum Bellamy Mansion on Friday, Oct. 28 from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 29 from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door for $25 and admission will include both houses. 

Terrifying scenes will await visitors in every room thanks to the Wilmington-based comedy and theater group Pineapple-Shaped Lamps.

On Friday, Oct. 28 at 8:30 p.m. a troupe of dancing dead will perform "Spooky Jam" in the Burgwin-Wright House orchard, which will feature 17 zombies.

The Burgwin-Wright House was built in 1770 and the Bellamy Mansion was built between 1859 and 1861. Both homes offers guided tours Tuesday through Saturday starting at 10 a.m.

Proceeds from the Halloween event will benefit the preservation of the historic houses and their operations as museums for the public benefit.
