History of Durham New Homes and Durham Real Estate:
Durham was founded in 1853 by a country physician named Bartlett Durham who lived and practiced throughout the greater Durham and RTP metropolitan areas. In Durham's early days the town was centered around the "Bull Durham Tobacco Company". The name "Bull Durham" had been taken from the bull on the British Coleman's Mustard, which was being manufactured in Durham, England. The rapid growth and prosperity of the Bull Durham Tobacco Company, and Washington Duke's Duke & Sons Tobacco Company, created rapid growth for the city of Durham, North Carolina. Much of the early Durham homes and city architecture, both commercial and residential, dates from the period of 1890 - 1930.
Trinity College, was established in Durham NC in 1892, and was transformed into Duke University in 1924 on a large endowment from James B. Duke to honor his father, Washington Duke. The original campus of Trinity College would become the Women's College, and a new campus was built in the forest west of Durham. Durham did not experience the same early increases in new homes and new housing development as did neighboring Raleigh and Cary. Durham new homes and residential growth began to occur again in the 1980s, as Durham home builders constructed multiple new Durham Homes and Durham housing developments in the southern part of Durham, adjacent to Research Triangle Park, new homes growth and downtown development became revitalized. A new downtown baseball stadium was constructed for the Durham Bulls in 1994, and a large-scale historic renovation of the American Tobacco Company, near the Bull Durham baseball complex began in 2003.
