In the 1800s, the American Tobacco Company was one of Durham's biggest businesses, with a large factory complex located in the heart of the city. The factory complex, located in downtown Durham, featured a large, diverse group of buildings, all designed to accommodate the thriving business of the American Tobacco Company. Today, that same factory complex – now known as the American Tobacco Historic District – is a destination for dining, entertainment, and special events. It's an excellent example of the attractions in downtown Durham, and our real estate agents are here to tell you all about what to expect from the American Tobacco Historic District.
