I am headed to the Centerfest Arts Festival in Durham this weekend. While I am in Durham I would like to take a drive through some of the historic neighborhoods.

Any "can't miss neighborhoods" that I should drive through?

By the way, I found a house listed on the MLS today that is for sale in Trinity Park. It is listed for around $169K. Is it unusual to find homes in that area for below $200k?


If I get the chance to take pictures I will post them here.

Thanks!

Hope Valley and Forest Hills are the 2 big old neighborhoods where you find a lot of the high-end homes. Otherwise, just drive around the downtown area. There's actually a very old home being restored not far off Main St in Trinity Park. You can see some of the old 2x8's and 2x6's laid diagonally as the exterior sheathing. Big gaps in between showing the lack of efficiency.

The area blocked in by S. Duke, Proctor, and Vickers area has some old mansions that are fun to see. Hill House is one: The Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties, NC - Headquarters Greystone Inn is another: Greystone Webpage

See this, too, from the Preservation Society:
Preservation Durham, North Carolina - Durham's Historic Neighborhoods (http://www.preservationdurham.org/places/nhoods.html - broken link)

(Make sure if you go to the Hope Valley area to drive around the country club neighborhood--you'll see the golf course--and not just the newer developments.)
