Comprised of two historic warehouses joined by a landscaped courtyard, Brightleaf Square was among the first of downtown Durham attractions to undergo revitalization in the early 1980’s. During this time, the buildings were converted into mixed-use spaces, which today are occupied by independent and locally-owned retailers, restaurants and professional offices.
Between 1900 and 1904, the American Tobacco Company built the Watts and Yuille warehouses for storing, aging and fermenting tobacco. The warehouses were used for this function until 1970 and sold to private developers in 1980. After a year of construction, Brightleaf Square opened with retail, restaurant and office spaces.
The courtyard hosts many local events, including a summer concert series and, new in 2019, the Durham Roots Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings, April through November. Visitors can stroll through the courtyard as they discover uncommon finds, dine at one-of-a-kind restaurants and delight in the ambiance of Durham’s past and future.
