Trinity Park Home Tour

When: Sun., Oct. 19, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 2014

TRINITY PARK, DURHAM | SUNDAY, OCT. 19 Trinity Park was established in the late-19th century, becoming a popular place for wealthy families to plant roots. But the neighborhood was not immune to nationwide urban decay in the 1960s, or the process, whether you call it gentrification or revitalization, that followed. It's a fascinating lens through which to consider a changing Durham, and the biennial Trinity Park Home Tour gives local history buffs an intimate view of the neighborhood's past. In addition to the home tour, there will be a free festival on Watts Street, where architects, home builders and landscape designers who have worked on homes in Trinity Park will set up booths for their services and goods alongside artists and sculptors. Food trucks and live music round out the festivities. Tickets for the tour may be purchased in advance at Morgan Imports, The Regulator Bookshop, Classic Treasures and online. 11 a.m.–5 p.m., $20, Watts St., trinitypark.org. —Will Partin
