McDougald Terrace was developed on vacant land east of Hayti and NCCU as part of large-scale public housing development in Durham, funded and authorized by the Housing Act of 1949. Two major, racially-segregated projects were developed in the early 1950s - Few Gardens, for white residents, McDougald Terrace, for African-American residents.

Looking northeast from NCCU towards the Durham Cotton Mfg Co buildings - the tree-filled area in between would become McDougald Terrace

From near Ellis Road, looking west-northwest, pre-McDougald Terrace, late 1940s.

Few Gardens was completed in 1952-53, and McDougald Terrace in 1954.
