From an 1890s Queen Anne to a 1950s stylish ranch, the neighborhood is full of interesting architecture and family histories. Tourgoers learned about the industrialists who built these lovely homes, the urban pioneers who preserved them, and the people who live here today, able to walk downtown for shopping and coffee, dinner, or a ball game. Tourgoers enjoy Preservation Durham’s annual tour at their own pace, exploring year by year the many neighborhoods that make Durham unique. Each building on the tour is staffed by friendly and well-informed docents to make the tour more interesting and enjoyable.
