701 South Duke St.

The houses on the east side of the 700 block of South Duke St. were more clearly a part of Morehead Hills rather than West End. The dividing line was never clearly delineated, but the low ground between the high point at Chapel Hill St. and the high point at Morehead Ave. (low ground through which runs a tributary of Third Fork Creek, now culverted under the Durham Freeway) was the grey-est of the the grey area. The 700 block was continguous with the 600 block on the east side, divided by Parker St. on the west, which 'T-ed' into Duke St. The 700 block's southern boundary was Morehead Ave. It is now entirely the Durham Freeway
