Standing on the land are sheds and a barn, as if they are paying homage to the rich history that molded the region, its culture and economy. The barn on Walker Farm is specific to the area. Its use in the prior century would have been to "put-in" tobacco where the broad plant leaves would have hung to turn golden until time to go to market. The tobacco barns now are valued by designers, artisans, architects, and builders. The timbers and wood from a tobacco barn are coveted for strength and rustic appeal. Tobacco barns were as monuments to the farmers, something of a sign of success. The farmer's growing tobacco strongly contributed, if not sustained, a rural area's economy.
The long-time tobacco markets and cigarette factories of Durham have been lovingly converted to character-filled shops boasting handmade articles, art galleries, offices, and some of the best dining spots in the country. Many restaurants are chef owned using local natural and organically grown ingredients flavor to the dining experience in every sense of the word.
