2005 Preservation Durham Old Durham Tour


RECENTLY RENOVATED DOWNTOWN SPACES

In the guidebook for HPSD's 2001 tour, "Living it Up Downtown," Tom Miller wrote, "It is not premature to declare that downtown Durham has been saved." That year, the Baldwin building was an empty shell - today, it is filled with a dozen loft apartments. The previous year, the HPSD tour had explored Durham's Tobacco Heritage. Tour-goers were led through the deserted courtyard at American Tobacco, surrounded by dilapidated buildings with broken windows and sagging roofs. Today, the American Tobacco Historic District is home to a growing list of tenants whose modern, high-tech offices overlook a lush green lawn where cracked pavement used to be. It seems Tom was right! Our tour this year features these sites and many more that prove the new vitality of Downtown Durham.
