A nondescript English town, with one of the strangest founding stories ever. (Read: Cow founds town) Outclassed in almost every aspect by it's namesakes the world over.

Durham is the ghetto member of the Triangle, along with their hippy neighbor Chapel Hill and their cleaner, more cultured, and infinitely more snobby neighbor Raleigh.

Infamous for its crime and being all around ghetto, as well as being the home of the very prestigious, yet very controversial Duke University, Durham gets flak from pretty much everybody, which is sad because most Durhamites are among the greatest people out there.

durham is a town in south central CT. it is full of farmers, a thing not commly found in CT. it is a very small town so small most of the people in Durham call Wallingford a city. Durham is the most ass backwards town in CT and is the only town where everyone has a southern accient dispite living in the north. The most thing people know Durham for is the Durham fair. It is basically a gathering for farmers to show off their prize pigs for a weekend and to race tractors. The most popular teen hangout in Durham is the DB mart. the second most popular is in someones basement smoking pot becuase thats all Durham kids do.

Durham is a town in south-central Connecticut. It is full of rednecks, something commonly not found in most of Connecticut. Due to it being such a small town, Most of the people of Durham consider Wallingford or Middletown a City. Durham is the most ass backwards town in the state of Connecticut and is known for having such a heavy southern influence regardless of being so far north. The town is known for the Durham Fair. It is an agricultural fair, so it's basically a pig and cow beauty contest or something. Known for Food and random bullshit artists that play every year. Most teens hang out driving around in their parents cars or in some persons basement smoking pot or getting drunk. The high school is called Coginchaug, and is known for it's dense populations of Douchebag Jocks, Slut girls and generally stupid people. It is even more divided economically, having students on the poorer end of the working class, and very very well endowed students as well. The lines blend because like 2/3s if not more of the people in this school smoke pot or drink, even if they don't let anyone know they do. And if they don't, they'll want to, because that's all there is to do in Durham.
