History

The first inhabitants of the Durham area were the Eno and the Occaneechi Native American tribes. During the period between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, large plantations began to rise up, and by 1860, Stagville Plantation was the center of one of the largest plantation holdings in the South.

 

After the Civil War, Durham was one of the first cities in the South to recover from the devastation. This was largely due to veterans’ interest in the mild “Brightleaf” tobacco they tried as they had passed through Durham. Local farmers Washington Duke and his sons supplied for the demand, creating a global tobacco empire. Duke tobacco later established energy giant Duke Power, and eventually transformed Trinity College into the world-renowned Duke University.

 

The establishment of textile mills also boosted the economy in Durham after the war. In the early 1900s, a vibrant African-American community, known as Hayti, was born in the southern part of the city. Some of the most successful black-owned businesses in the country were crafted here, and the area became known as “Black Wall Street.”

 

Both the tobacco and textile industries declined significantly between 1960 and 1980, but the city was revived with the development of Research Triangle Park, a major research and development complex in Durham.
