The Duke family was also responsible for electrifying the entire central and western North Carolina. The success of the tobacco industry encouraged the textile industry to locate outside Durham. These areas were known as East Durham and West Durham. They were annexed by the City of Durham. The city has since promoted the redevelopment of these areas. The area is now known as the American Tobacco Historic District. The district is located adjacent to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
