The 21c Museum Hotel Durham inhabits the former home of the Durham Bank & Trust Company, which later became the Central Carolina Bank in 1961. Famed architectural firm Shreve, Lamb & Harmon designed the building during the mid-1930s for the bank’s co-founder, John Sprunt Hill. Finished in 1937, the building stood as the tallest structure in Durham and housed the bank for the next 68 years. 21c Museum Hotels bought the location during the 2000s, transforming it into a full-service hotel. Debuting as the 21c Museum Hotel Durham in 2015, this historic building has been restored as a glamorous destination and a contemporary art museum with rotating exhibits and over 10,500 square feet of art-filled event space.
