Durham's Station

  • 300 Blackwell St, American Tobacco, Downtown Durham
  • Durham, NC 27701

Durham's Station was located near the site of what was once the headquarters of American Tobacco Company (the world's largest cigarette manufacturer) and is now one of the most ambitious, largest, and farthest-reaching historic preservation and renovation projects in the history of North Carolina. The station was the primary stop for Union officers during surrender negotiations at James Bennett's farm, and Union Commander Kilpatrick established headquarters at the nearby home of Dr. Richard Blacknall. N.C. Civil War marker on Blackwell Street, on the northern end of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
