During the late 19th century, Durham transformed from a rural unincorporated community into one of America's largest manufacturing centers of tobacco products thanks to industry tycoon George Washington Duke.
Home to the Research Triangle Park and Duke University, Durham is a major hub for technology, academics and health care. The historic downtown district boasts urban amenities such as performing arts venues, and the city offers access to pristine areas like Falls Lake and Eno River State Park. Dubbed the "Bull City," Durham's character has been strongly shaped by its once-thriving tobacco industry.
