Durham, CA, is located in Butte County, just south of Chico along Highway 99. Established in the early 20th century as an experimental cooperative agricultural colony, Durham today covers almost 82 square miles of land, home to a population of roughly 5,500 people.
The community was founded by the Durham Family and named for W. W. Durham, a member of the California State Assembly. A railroad soon ran through Durham, helping develop the area and keep it alive. The Durham Flour Mill was another essential part of the local culture for many years, even as it burned down several times. The original Durham House stands today as a reminder of the town’s early days. Durham’s warm climate has always made the region ideal for growing almonds and walnuts.
