About

Once RJ Reynold's Prizery built in 1938, The Rickhouse overlooks the famed Durham Athletic Park, the original home of the Durham Bulls, in the Central Park district of downtown Durham.

Gorgeous space, full of love

After one of our non-profit's board member's wedding at The Rickhouse got canceled due to COVID, he donated the space to our non-profit to host our annual auction/fundraiser. IT WAS PERFECT! The wood floors, brick walls, magical lighting, and sunset over the back porch all imbued the event with warmth and good vibes. The GM and all staff were top notch and made it easy to create something so beautiful for the community.
