“The start of tobacco road”

See the early home, factories, and farm where Washington Duke first grew and processed tobacco. His sons later founded The American Tobacco Company, the world's largest tobacco company. Duke and others helped create a market for Durham-area tobacco products that eventually would make North Carolina the heart of an international tobacco empire. Many profits were invested in land and industries but others were used for such humanitarian causes as Duke University, named for the family.

It was a very interesting and educational museum. It is in the middle of a residential area, so you'll think you're in the wrong place but you're not. We were there about an hour and a half
