Durham Urban Renewal Records Now Online

A large collection of property appraisals and photographs from the Durham Urban Renewal Records in the Durham County Library is now available on DigitalNC. The online collection contains nearly 1,500 items, most of which are photographs and appraisals for properties slated for demolition during renewal projects in the 1960s and 1970s. These records provide a fascinating look at the history of Durham, enabling users to view and study houses and even whole neighborhoods that no longer exist.

Learn more about the collection — and Durham history in general — at the North Carolina Collection in the Durham County Library.
