Long Description:

Greystone was built in 1910 for James Edward Stagg, a wealthy and prominent Durham citizen. From 1893 until 1895 Stagg was private secretary to his cousin Benjamin Duke of the American Tobacco Company fame. In 1895 Stagg became involved with the Durham and Southern Railway, serving as vice-president and general manager. Stagg's other business activities in Durham included directorships of the Erwin Cotton Mill, the Pearl Cotton Mill, the Fidelity Bank, and the Union Station Company

Stagg’s was related by marriage to Dr. Bartlett Durham for whom the city is named.

After Mr. Stagg's death in 1915, Mrs. Stagg continued to live in the house until her death in 1945. The house was inherited by her daughter. Around 1961 the house was divided into six apartments with the carriage house housing two more apartments as well.

In the late 1990’s, following four years of renovations, the first floor of Greystone was restored to the original floor plan. The building is now operated as a conference center. Greystone is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the few original mansions left in an area of Durham that once had quite a few.
