Over the last two decades, Durham has been successful at redefining how to build a prosperous city. With the loss of the tobacco and textile industries in the 1980s and 90s, much of Durham was forced to reinvent itself. It took a community effort to organize, invest, preserve, and grow this city into the nationally recognized success it is today.
In this book you will find:

I’ve written about and photographed the architecture and history of Durham for many years out of a depp love for Durham’s buildings – John’s photography does the beauty of those buildings great justice.”
