A popular family oriented neighborhood in the midst of the city, this Durham development began in the early 1920s and continued in growth through the 1970s, when most of the lots were bought and built upon. Close to downtown Durham and to Duke, the neighborhood offers huge hardwoods, winding roads and rolling hills.
The city park has a quiet creek, a swimming pool, tennis courts, picnic areas and occupies land that once was a 9 hole golf course. Like other older, Durham neighborhoods, the architecture is as distinctively eclectic as the people.
