2014-home-tour-logoSaturday and Sunday
April 26 – 27, 2014
12:00 – 4:00 pm

Durham’s history is closely lined to the rise and fall of the NC tobacco industry, and the massive buildings that housed this manufacture are a huge part of Durham’s unique character.


Thank you to our property owners and volunteers
who made this year’s tour a success. See you next year!

About the Tour

Join us for behind-the-scenes access to 6 historic tobacco manufacturing sites in downtown Durham:

  • Liberty Warehouse – This is your last chance to take a peek inside Durham’s last remaining tobacco auction warehouse before its demolition in May.
  • Brame Building – See inside the future home of the Tyler’s Taproom Distillery!
  • American Tobacco – Visit fabulous, modern office spaces of nationally recognized companies, located in this historic complex.  This is by far some of the coolest office space in Durham!
  • Venable Tobacco Company – Transformed into modern office space, the buildings in this complex were built in response to the changing transportation needs (rail & truck) of the 20th century tobacco industry.
  • Liggett and Myers O’Brien Warehouse – Transformed by West Village into luxury lofts.
  • Imperial Tobacco Warehouse- See the spaces featured in the 1988 movie, Bull Durham.
