Durham is bordered on the north by Albany County to the east by the Town of Greenville to the south by the Town of Cairo to the west by the Town of Windham and Schoharie County.  The Catskill Creek flows down the center-line of the valley, southeastward through Preston Hollow and Cooksburg in the town of Rensselaerville (Albany County) through Oak Hill and East Durham. The Catskill Creek flows through the flatter portions of the towns of Cairo and Catskill, emptying into the Hudson River at the Village of Catskill.

According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 50.5 sq mi square miles and a population of 970, 97% white. The median income for a household in the town was $41,172. The per capita income for the town was $22,440.

On March 8th, 1790 the town of Coxsackie was divided into two nearly equal sections, the eastern division retained the original name, Coxsackie while the western portion of the town was organized as the Town of Freehold.

The Town of Freehold, as thus constituted, was very extensive. It included not only the present Town of Durham, but large portions of each of the existing towns of Greenville, Cairo, Windham, Ashland and Prattsville in Greene County and nearly the whole Town of Conesville in Schoharie County.

Upon the formation of the County of Greene, March 25th, 1800, Freehold became one of her townships. On March 28th, 1805, the name of the town was changed to Durham. Many of the early settlers came from Durham in Connecticut and from the very first they had called their settlement “New Durham”. The name had continually gained favor with the people and was finally adopted by universal consent as the appropriate name for the town.

While there are fewer Irish hotels and resorts today, East Durham continues to be a center of Irish culture. In 1987, the Michael J. Quill Irish Sports and Cultural Centre opened in the Weldon House. Every Memorial Day Weekend it sponsors a large, famous Irish Cultural Festival at the fair grounds in East Durham with many bands and dancing. It also sponsors the Catskills Irish Arts Week every July, when experts in Irish music, dancing, and other arts travel from Ireland to teach courses. East Durham is also home to the Irish American Heritage Museum and the National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock which is an American sister to the pilgrimage site of Our Lady of Knock in the village of Knock, County Mayo, Ireland.

Over time, East Durham has grown as a center for the town’s tourism. The tourism that grew in the early twentieth century generated a new prosperity in the Town of Durham. New homes and businesses were built on the impetus of this economic factor. Additionally, second homes were being built for the first time. Tourists, who had come to like the area, began to buy and restore existing homes and to have new ones built in the contemporary fashion. Today, second homes which are evident throughout Durham and the Catskills are an important driving force for the local economy.

The Town of Durham hosts several local, regional and International businesses as well as first class accommodations and restaurants and has remained an important vacation destination.
