Major the Bull Sculpture

211 W Parrish St
Durham, NC 27701

No trip to Durham is complete without a visit to CCB Plaza to see Major the Bull, a gigantic bronze bull ready to greet you in the center of downtown. In 2003, Central Carolina Bank (now Truist) commissioned the 10-foot, one-ton statue. The iconic bull was cast by Liberty Arts to be an icon for the City of Durham, named for George "Major" Watts Hill, an executive at CCB Bank and Durham City Councilmember. It is said to be good luck to rub Major's horns.
