About the feature, the museum
This Week in Durham History is a joint project of the Museum of Durham History, Jim DePalma’s history students at Durham Technical Community College and DTCC’s 50th Anniversary community service committee. The Museum of Durham History is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing Durham's history to life and encouraging appreciation for our community’s heritage, pride in its accomplishments and support for its potential. The Museum’s home, the History Hub, is downtown at 500 W. Main St. and will hold its Grand Opening Oct. 12. For more information, see www.museumofdurhamhistory.org.
