Preservation Durham is thrilled to announce our 21st annual Preservation Tour, which will highlight Durham’s historic West End neighborhood and the Burch Avenue Neighborhood.

See some of the area’s most cherished residential and commercial restorations, and get sneak peeks into the not-yet- opened Grub Restaurant and The Cookery’s newest event space.

The tour will begin at noon each day, with booklets
