About Durham

Durham has more than 30,000 Angie’s List members who turn to the site’s reviews from other members when they want service providers to repair, expand or improve their homes or find the right medical professional for their health care needs.

Called “the flower of the Carolinas” by English explorer John Lawson in 1701, Durham didn’t become a major hub until after the Civil War ended and the city itself and nearby towns such as Cary, Apex, Wakefield and Crabtree Valley grew quickly. The 220 buildings on the campus of Duke University's are among Durham's most historic and beautiful structures, and the surrounding neighborhoods are stunning as well.

A growth spurt in the 1970s and 1980s brought many new housing developments to southern Durham. Today, traditional frame houses and brick suburban-style dwellings are once again springing up in the southern sector, and downtown is coming alive with condos and restaurants. The city is also becoming known for its jazz and blues festivals and for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.

Angie’s List provides Durham residents trusted consumer reviews on service providers they need to help maintain homes, old or new, and the best local health professionals. Whether its simple office check-up or a major remodel, Durham residents find the professionals they need on Angie’s List. Join Angie's List Durham.
