Grey Stone Legacy Center

Bobbitt completed a two-story, 30,000 square-foot Legacy Center addition for Grey Stone Church. The project is located on a 6.3-acre site on Hillsborough Road in Durham, N.C.

Grey Stone Baptist Church was established in West Durham in 1894 and has been a beacon at the current location since 1935. The day care ministry, known as the Grey Stone Christian Learning Center, is the oldest continually operating day care in North Carolina, serving families since 1943.

Church leaders selected Bobbitt for its design-build experience with numerous religious and day care projects.

The Legacy Center, with a capacity to serve 140 children, is the new home for the existing day care ministry, church preschool, elementary and special needs children’s ministries. Grey Stone is known for its “Duke” stone architecture, which the new facility features to complement the existing church building. Significant site work was involved: rerouting sanitary sewer and stormwater around the new building site.
