Nate Davis remembers that during his childhood, the Hargraves Community Center as a safe space to hang out and play sports with friends, and now, after years of working first part time and then full-time for the Center, he is the director. Davis tells the story of Hargraves starting in the 1940s. It was a place for recreation and site of important community functions. After World War II, the Center housed the B1 Navy Band when they came to Chapel Hill. Hargraves has meant a tremendous amount to the Northside, Chapel Hill, and Orange County communities, as well as Davis himself and his family.
