The Durham History Hub, Durham

4.6
Durham, North Carolina, is believed to be the site of an ancient Native American village named Adshusheer. It was the site of the largest troop surrender to end the Civil War. But the glory days of the early 20th Century, when Bull Durham was recognized worldwide and it was the home of the most successful African American Community in America, have been succeeded by a vibrant community celebrating education, medicine, and high technology.

Durham's Cultural Master Plan examined the need for a history museum and concluded "There are an array of programs in various historic sites and a number of walking tours. What is missing is a centrally located facility that can knit all these elements together into a coherent story of Durham's past and its relevance to the present."

  • The front desk staff were very nice, but there's not really much here to see. What little they had was decently presented, but they didn't use the space well and there wasn't really summary of the history of Durham.
  • Interesting find. Learning the story’s that make up Durham
