The museum covered all the transportation history of the area from the native American's in dugouts to trains, horse and buggy, and the motor car. It also tells of the involvement of Fayetteville and it's people during the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and the Civil War. Wonderful displays. It's free too.

The secrets are in the details. If you take your time and read into the displays you will find yourself very interested. It is a quick tour but if you are into history you can spend an hour or so checking out the details.
