Once the seat of a thriving tobacco industry, Durham has seen some significant moments in American history. In the early 20th century, tobacco manufacturing led to rapid growth in the area, and the early-American architecture stands as a memorial to this period, with tall red-brick warehouses and stately homes. One of the first civil rights sit-ins took place in the town, and sites such as "Black Wall Street" pay homage to the rich African-American heritage in the city. Some of the tobacco district has been revitalized--restaurants and entertainment venues have brought energy back to the manufacturing spaces. Use our United States trip itinerary maker website to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Durham.
