In 2019, Preservation Durham is concentrating on residential architecture just before and immediately following World War Two. For months now, Preservation Durham has been engaged in identifying nearly one hundred houses across town representing pre- and post-World War Two architecture in all its variety. All the issues of this period are manifested in Durham and, because Durham is like no other place, the story has some unique Durham twists. Our purpose is to promote a fuller public appreciation of these houses, the people who lived in them, and Durham at the time they were built. The tour houses stretch across Durham’s historic neighborhoods – Forest Hills, Trinity Park, Watts-Hillandale, and Northgate Park. Join us on the tour. See these houses in a new light.
