If you're interested in living in an historic district in Durham, you're in luck. Nearly 20 neighborhoods are listed as National Register Historic Districts, and 7 are also designated as local historic districts. It's a great way to buy a home with character, versus something more "cookie cutter" in Cary. If you choose to renovate a property within a National Register Historic, you may be eligible for tax incentives. National Register designation does not prevent an owner from demolishing a property or making non-historic changes to properties, while the local historic designation does provide for stricter restrictions. Most of the National Register neighborhoods are not local historic districts.
