Your discovery of Durham begins here.

Discover Durham invites you to visit our Visitor Info Center, a space committed to the celebration of Durham's history and future.

Located in the historic Trust Building in downtown Durham, the structure was the tallest building in North Carolina when it was constructed in 1905. It's also the city's first multi-story office building.

Our location at 212 W. Main St. # 101 is spacious and well-equipped, with abundant natural light, tall ceilings and interactive touchscreen displays.
