Hope Valley Country Club Records

Hope Valley Country Club was established in Durham in 1926 by real estate developers R. Jesse Mebane and Walter E. Sharpe on a site carved from four existing farms. The community was conceived of as an "automobile suburb" and country club designed to serve the young professionals in Durham's tobacco, textile, and healthcare industries, as well as the faculty of Duke University and the University of North Carolina. This digital collection consists of photographs, clippings, legal documents, and other materials related to the history of the club and its members.
