The Trials of Doris, Part X

In a most recent update from DORIS and the fight to save Duke Mansion, the Retro Revival is pleased to announce that on Friday (tomorrow) there will be a conference held between parties and a judge that can delegate a ‘stay’ against all actions made in attempts to demolish or further dismantle the historic main residence at Duke Farms.

We also confirm at this time that further actions to prove unjust activity at the Farms and by the hands of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation will be taken by members of the DORIS group and beyond- several activists agree, summarizing that “we will not stop until the right things begin to happen for Dukes, and we won’t stop until we feel that goals will continue to be met in the likeness of the Dukes, not the big shots in charge now”. Other DORIS members also released that the recent pro-Foundation press is likely being used to repair the tarnished reputation of the DDCF, but don’t be fooled. The actions at the estate in Hillsborough will not be forgotten, and things have only just begun to change for the better at the ever-beautiful Duke Estate.

Just as things are about to get exciting for 2016, STAY TUNED! New updates and big reveals are coming up in 1 week!



For over 8 amazing years, it has been an experience, a pleasure, and a journey to be a revivalist. I love all things retro and antique. Writing has been a passion of mine since middle school and throughout my professional career. For all those who are inspired to be vintage, challenge the norms in the name of tradition! We write for a better, more inspired tomorrow <3
