located in the city center. Historical building that is used in the city logo. Many people give down town directions with the Markethouse as a starting point. The surrounding area has a few nice restaurants...poor shopping...& office space. Downtown died when the city government moved the bars out. Most residents refuse to go downtown because of the constant traffic interruptions... More

It's a must for history buffs.It looks pretty much like it did long ago.Makes one think of all the people at one time or another that has been through it.

Fayetteville's historical structure that comes with history. The Market House sits in an odd place downtown that acts as a round about, don't know why it's listed under an attraction, most people don't think of it that way ...Good for giving out driving directions ...nothing touristy to see here unless you're into historical landmarks.

Nice landmark to see. A piece of Fayetteville's history. Surrounding downtown area is worth a visit if you have plenty of free time.

When trying to find anything in or near downtown, knowing where the Markethouse is valuable. Take a left at the Markethouse roundabout to get to........ or go just past it to get to the.....

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!
