Durham Real Estate & Homes for Sale in North Carolina
When the historic city of Durham, NC was incorporated in April of 1869, it was a mere railroad stop serving fewer than 100 people, yet already overflowing with traditional Southern charm. Tobacco and textiles shaped its economic destiny in the early years. However, modern Durham, known as the "City of Medicine," is characterized today by its diversity that includes innovative businesses, acclaimed culture, outstanding recreational opportunities and exceptional homes and real estate.
