The Cotton Room: a Rich History

The Cotton Room is housed in a historic tobacco production building, which was originally built in 1887 as a part of the Bull Durham Tobacco Company in Durham, NC. After more than 125 years serving as a cotton mill, a textile plant, a cigarette label and box-making facility, and many others, the building was donated to the Durham Housing Authority in 1996 and was finally sold to a private developer in 2004.
