Robin Triplett is a retired Wilmington History teacher. She currently does tours of downtown Wilmington; her company is called Take a Trip with Triplett. She either does Historical Downtown Wilmington or the peaceful pathways of Oakdale cemetery. Robin modified her tour for The Kempton residents and put it into a presentation called the “City of Steeples, Heartland of Wilmington”.
She discussed the history and importance of some of the large churches and houses in downtown Wilmington. These include St James Episcopal Church, Burgwin- Wright House, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Kenan Fountain, Bellamy Mansion, First Baptist Church, Jewish Temple of Israel, and many more.
We enjoyed learning about these beautiful buildings! In the spring, we hope to go on a bus tour with Robin. Thank you, Robin!
