This area was orginally developed because of transportation needs. WE are at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. This museum tells that key to our history plus lots of interesting tidbits, like a 1950's gas station, info on hotels - steam boat travel, etc.

This museum focuses primarily on the development of river and rail transportation in the Fayetteville area. The river transportation part was most informative with a lot of information about the various types of vessels that carried agricultural and forestry products to Wilmington for shipment around the world, and returned to Fayetteville with products needed by those living in the internal...

This is not a large museum but it is worth the visit. I especially like to visit when it is hosting the local farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

They also host a variety of tours throughout the year. Also every Saturday they hold a market with lots of local farmers and vendors. Unlike other farmers markets, this one... More

This museum is small but it has a lot of information and displays. It is free which is a big bonus. I have paid to get into smaller and less well done museums. My boys (11, 9, 9) enjoyed the museum and a bonus was when a train went past carrying military equipment. We made a special trip to the... More

This place is ok if you don't have anything better to do, there is much there, it will take you about 15 minutes to go thru it, fortunately they don't charge anything.
