Going back in time at American Tobacco

At its height, The American Tobacco Company was the largest cigarette producer in the world. After it closed up shop in Durham in 1987, the campus of historic buildings sat empty for many years before being brought back to life as one of the largest historic preservation projects in North Carolina’s history. The end result is a home-run of adaptive reuse architecture.

Trinity Park Home Tour: 1011 Monmouth

When Home Tour participants last saw this house in 2010, it was in the midst of a major renovation. The 2014 visit will be quite different.

Built in 1923,  the house was occupied by members of the family that built it until it was purchased by Gopal Sreenivasan and Jennifer Hawkins in late 2009.
