Roney Street

Roney Street bears the family name of Washington Duke's second wife, Artelia Roney of Alamance County. Artelia was the mother of Mary, Benjamin N. and James B. Duke.

Roney Street opened between 1893 and 1898 and originally ran between Chapel Hill and Hunt Streets. By 1949 it had been extended to Corporation Street. Most of Roney's original section was closed and built over with the Durham Centre and Durham Convention Center in the late 1980s.
