North Church Street

Church Street is one of the earliest and most persistent street names in Durham; it derives its name from the Trinity Methodist Church, which has stood at the northern end of the street since the dawn of Durham. Until its demolition in 1968, Union Station stood at the southern end of the street, its tower giving great architectural balance to the short street. Unfortunately, the morons running the city government at the time tore it down.

Church Street was part of the original Roxboro-Fayetteville Road, which curved around the church (as the curve still does,) and continued northward along the present-day (2012) path of Cleveland Street.
