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.

February’s frosty air a challenge for market vendors

February has been a doozy for local farmers. Strong winds, snow, sleet, ice, and frigid temperatures have been brought to us courtesy of an unusual weather pattern dubbed the Siberian Express. It is a cold mass of air originating in Russia that has travelled over the snow pack of the North Pole.

We don’t close for snow days….

Once again it's cold and snowy. The news team advice is stay off the roads. I'm at my desk at Urban Ministries of Durham.
