The Murphey School (Shared Visions Retreat Center)
3717 Murphy School Rd, Durham, NC 27705
(yes, the road has a different spelling of Murphey)
The Murphey School was built in 1923, a fitting venue for one of our monthly swing dance events. In recent decades, it fell into disrepair and went through a complete historic renovation in 2008-2010 and was accepted in the National Register of Historic Places. A 2500 sq ft auditorium with wood floors, a raised stage, ceiling fans, and air conditioning provide a great environment for our 100+ attendees to dance into the night.
A map is below. Note that the road is “Murphy” while the school was “Murphey” with the extra “e”.
