Durham's Top Neighborhoods For Searching Historic Homes

Durham Historic Homes

Durham is a perfect place for historic home hunters. There are a dozen historical neighborhoods all with their own distinct characteristics. If you’re searching for a historic home, below are 3 of the areas to put at the top of your list. 

Burch AveNUE

The Burch Avenue neighborhood, just north of Morehead Hill, features an eclectic mixture of home styles. Walking around this neighborhood, you’ll find Queen Anne Victorians, Colonial Revivals, Craftsman Bungalows, and even 1940s post-war Minimal Traditional houses combined, creating a vibrant, diverse community that's filled with charm and character. If you are looking for a home with a unique charm within an area where many of the homes were developed around the same time, this is a great area to look because of the variety in architectural styles. 

Trinity Historic District

 The Trinity Park and Trinity Heights areas are collectively recognized as the Trinity Historic District. Many of the historic neighborhoods in Durham have deep ties to the tobacco industry, however; The Trinity Historic District was centered and developed around Trinity College. The neighborhood provided homes for students, professors, and a number of middle-class residents that worked at the school. Today, Trinity Historic District is a popular, quaint, residential area where the commercial buildings have been restored or repurposed maintaining the early 20th century aesthetic. This is a prime neighborhood to check out if you’re looking to own a piece of Durham history. 

Duke Park

Named for Brodie Duke, the original landowner, the Duke Park neighborhood is a famed historical area in Durham. In the 19th century, the area was mostly farmland for the Duke family, and the legend is that the North Durham residents were allowed to graze their animals on the Duke’s land. Today, there are many historical homes and a community that works to create a welcoming neighborhood for residents of all ages. In addition to the character and charm of the century old architectural gems which populate Duke Park, residents enjoy the lush green spaces and parks. The Duke Park Preservation Initiative and the Duke Neighborhood Association all champion history, preservation of homes, and development in the area. There is also a rich neighborhood event calendar. Duke Park is a perfect area for buyers that appreciate historical homes and active community participation.
