    Hopefully the supermarket vibrations will be more favorable directly across the street from here at 607 N. Mangum, future home of the Durham Central Market. More info at http://durhamcentralmarket.org/

    You missed a whole era. This place also used to be a night club. I won a rap contest but was too young to enter. This was the late '80s. I need to find that song.

600 block of North Mangum - 602 is the house in the lower right hand corner.

602 N. Mangum was built in the early 20th century; Mrs. MF Happer lived in the house in 1919. In 1963, the house was demolished.

As an early project of United Durham Incorporated (UDI,) a supermarket was built to serve a community that was no longer served by supermarkets.

The supermarket was not a success - I don't know much about the story, but the building remains.

UDI later (much) worked to bring a Food Lion to an abandoned supermarket site on Fayetteville St.; I don't know how they are doing, but it's certainly still around.

Find this spot on a Google Map.
