American College Towns: Durham, NC By Kevin Clark, Joel Anderson, 2019
- American College Towns: Durham, NC
Durham, North Carolina, is a college town if there ever was one. This city is home to Duke University and North Carolina Central University. The city’s colleges not only act as crucial institutes of higher learning, but they are also major employers for Durham residents. And as the economy has turned around in this southern town, the city has begun to revitalize its downtown, investing in culture and history rather than suburbs. Our turn-of-the-century styled illustration of Durham features the historic downtown as it looked in the early-1900s. Our American Travel art series is meant to remind us of the special nature of our nation's cities and their unique features. This vintage poster art brings attention to Durham’s pleasant Brightleaf Square. To learn more about the city and its other points of interest, visit Discover Durham.
