Its always easier to tear something down and build new, there are always investors looking to build the next subdivision, or a chain store, or simply a parking lot.

Having grown up in the church as a young boy, Charles Gibbs, takes us down memory lane of irreplaceable parts of Durham’s history, and reminds us that some things survive in spite of themselves.
