We had a near record attendance of approximately 1100 people and a number of our elected officials joined us in our parade through the neighborhood. If anyone has any pictures they’d like to share, please send them to me and I’d be happy to post them.

About The Neighborhood

The Watts Hospital-Hillandale Neighborhood is in Durham, NorthCarolina and lies just west of downtown. Development in the neighborhood started in 1908 with the construction of Watts Hospital at the corner of Club Boulevard (known as E Street) and Broad Street. The neighborhood is composed mostly of Arts and Crafts style homes built from the 1910s through the 1940s.

In 1998, Watts Hospital-Hillandale became a National Historic District. The neighborhood is protected by the City of Durham historic district rules. In 2008, the neighborhood celebrated its 100th birthday.
