Just moving to the area, learning the history behind this place and the nerve to be listed as an "attraction" is just plain disrespectful. This is a place where slaves were auctioned at and sold. I will never in my life step foot under this place and my children when old enough to understand will know that this place is... More

My husband and I have driven by it several times and thats about the extent of our experience with this "attraction". Im not really sure if you can park somewhere near by and walk to it? Even then it's really only an interesting looking building in the middle of a traffic circle.

It is hard to believe that this is listed as an attraction. The downtown area that surrounds this architectural gem was once lined with shops and store, but alot have been shuttered/abandoned. The area has been devastated by the economic downturn. This is not destination-worthy.

There is much history behind this location. It may seem like just a obscure building yet it represents more than just some bricks

Very nice location to take pictures with it and of it. Been in Fayetteville for three years and love that this is such an iconic representation of Fayetteville. The city needs a regular walking tour of downtown....so much history to hear about!

I've lived in Fayetteville for 12 years and this... More

This is a beautiful building in the middle of the historical district. It can all be seen from driving your car around the traffic circle. No entering it...a few plaques to describe its history. Nice picture opportunity.

The building is located in the middle of a driving circle and is not open for viewing. There are shops and restaurants along the walk.
