The Tragedy In Durham

Like us, we know a lot of you have spent carefree hours around the Brightleaf Square area in Durham. Located on West Main Street, it’s in a historic part of downtown where the trains used to come in to haul Bull Durham Tobacco out and then send it around the world.

In recent times, between Brightleaf, the old Durham Athletic Park and the new DBAP (Durham Bulls Athletic Park), not to mention the DPAC (Durham Performing Arts Center) and the American Tobacco Campus project and other great places, that area has been revived and become a real treasure of Durham and the Triangle.
