The History of Durham Station
Originally called Durham Station for the name of the railway stop built on land donated by Dr. Bartlett Durham in 1849, it was not until two decades later that the town was incorporated and name shortened to Durham.
Until prior to the Civil War it was a small agricultural community that catered some to travelers moving through the area and saw little in the way of growth.
The Civil War brought with it the movement of both armies through Durham and the areas Brightleaf Tobacco caught the attention of many of the soldiers. Post-war, the tobacco industry was almost solely responsible for the rapid growth that Durham experienced as soldiers returning home wanted more of the tobacco they had enjoyed while fighting in the area.
The Bull Durham Tobacco Factory and W. Duke & Sons Tobacco Company were formed and became tobacco powerhouses, with Duke & Sons creating a near monopoly in the tobacco industry. Duke & Sons was eventually broken up by the Federal Government under antitrust laws and continues to operate as Duke Energy today. The Duke legacy lives on today, with both Duke University and the Duke University Health System which combined employ nearly 35,000 area residents.
