The 500 and 600 blocks of Willard Street extended from Jackson to the 'point' with Warren St., divided by Yancey Street on the west side of the street. (Yancey didn't extend east of Willard.)

These houses were torn down in 1967 by the city using urban renewal funds.

Where 505 Willard sat is a 1970s era structure that was built as the NC Mutual Annex, but is currently the Durham Center (Durham County mental health) - a Greenfire property.
