Durham

Flowers of the Carolinas

Once the seat of a thriving tobacco industry, Durham has seen some significant moments in American history. In the early 20th century, tobacco manufacturing led to rapid growth in the area, and the early-American architecture stands as a memorial to this period, with tall red-brick warehouses and stately homes. One of the first civil rights sit-ins took place in the town, and sites such as "Black Wall Street" pay homage to the rich African-American heritage in the city. Some of the tobacco district has been revitalized--restaurants and entertainment venues have brought energy back to the manufacturing spaces. Durham is in North Carolina (NC).
