Durham was a sleepy Southern town prior to the Civil War, but was built by tobacco and textiles during the post-Civil War era. One of the world's largest corporations, American Tobacco, was founded here by Washington Duke. Trinity College, which was brought to Durham thanks to Duke's generosity, was renamed Duke University nearly 20 years after his death. The Duke family also started textile mills in the area and expanded throughout the state. While the tobacco warehouses aren't used for tobacco anymore, they've been repurposed and house some of the city's best restaurants, art galleries, and shops. The Duke institution that brings most attorneys to Durham, though, is world-renowned Duke University Medical Center.
Our Durham office, located on Broad Street near the NC School of Science & Math, is close to shopping and dining on Ninth Street, including top-rated Parizade. For lodging, in the downtown area we recommend the Durham Marriott City Center. Closer to the Research Triangle Park, at Southpoint, we recommend Hyatt Place.
If you have some extra time while you're in Durham, check out the gorgeous Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University, the Duke Basketball Museum, or, depending on the time of year, catch a minor league baseball game at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
