    The Gorman Ruritan Club is well down E. Geer down next to Glenn School. I would venture that a lot of folks who live in the areas along E. Geer between there and the church would say that they live in Gorman...

    The original Gorman Baptist Church building was built in 1916. The brick sanctuary did go up later, in the 1940s (not sure of the exact year). The church was a spin off of an older church somewhere in the Hamlin Road area, Piney Grove or Pine Grove. My great grandparents, A.C. and Martha Fogleman were some of the first members of Gorman.

Another small crossroads community in eastern Durham, onetime Wake County, Gorman mostly a railroad crossing and a church now, but I like the persistence of the small triple-A roofline house by the tracks.


Gorman Baptist Church, 10.10.10


House at Red Mill Road and the RR tracks, 10.10.10
