Dr. Blackwell Markham's house once stood at the southeast corner of Cleveland and Seminary streets, one of three Markham houses along the street.
Looking southeast from close to the corner of Seminary and Cleveland, 09.27.66
Looking north from the front porch, 09.27.66
You can also see a view of the house in the H. Lee Waters films of Durham, viewable at the entry for the First Baptist Church (Cleveland St.)
It was torn down in the late 1960s as part of the city/Federal Urban Renewal program, and promptly became a parking lot for the First Baptist Church.
