At one time there were over 230 churches in the six townships of the old county, now today there are just over 70. What became of those ‘lost’ churches? Why did they close? Where did the congregations go?

This 322 page book covers the history of our churches from the time of the early settlers up to today (2013). If you have an interest in the community in which you live, or you have deep roots in Old Durham, this book will appeal to you.
