Mappy Monday: Durham, Connecticut Historic District
Unlike many of the surrounding communities, Durham made a concerted effort to protect its oldest homes by forming a historic district. Durham's Historic District can be explored through a variety of "maps." The first is the traditional map, which shows the Historic District outlined against the rest of town. A second is the historic district booklet, including the documentation used to form the district.Finally, there's a walking tour of the district. It's currently MIA from the town's website, but hopefully it will be back soon. Explore the district. It's a great introduction to Durham's past.
