Latest historic district reflect city’s working class roots
On Sept. 6, the Durham City Council voted to approve the Golden Belt Local Historic District with its full recommended boundary. The passage of this new district, the city’s eighth, displays the power of historic preservation’s evolving role in Durham. The designation of Golden Belt also highlights the changing face of historic preservation and the tools that it provides to residents and property owners.
