2023 Conference – Thursday Evening Reception: Lakewood Park Historic District

October 05, 2023


Check-in at Honeysuckle Restaurant to grab a bite and a beer (or glass of wine) then walk across the street to tour several homes (including Myrick’s childhood home) in the Lakewood Park National Register Historic District. Lakewood is a vibrant, early 20th century suburb of modest cottages, bungalows and Craftsman-style homes. Come peek inside the “real” and residential side of historic Durham. You’ll learn more about the neighborhood, its history, and why Lakewood Park was called “The Coney Island of the South.” End your tour back at Honeysuckle to socialize over s’mores.
