Research the History

Not much to see. I can only imagine what it would have been like. Read the history of this structure before visiting.

Buildings are beautiful but after you hear about the slavery trade that was conducted here it just makes you realize why Fayetteville is what it is. I was actually on a business tour when a sales person told a group of us what the marketplace was used for...needless to say she didn't realize that the African Americans in the shuttle... More

The landmark was preserved for "history." The history is selling & trading slaves. So, to me, this is not "beautiful", but rather it is an ugly tribute to slavery. Its shameful that this thing still exist, but it was a group of southern confederate women who fought tooth an nail to keep it up because it was "honorable" to them.... More

It's nice, I guess. The Markethouse is a historical and aesthetic part of downtown, but noone should drive to just see the Markethouse. If you come upon it, than yes, snap a photo and check it out.

If in Fayetteville, this is a beautiful landmark to the downtown area. It was one of the first things that caught my eye when coming into town.

Not sure if I would consider this a "place to visit". My husband and I have driven around it a few times and walked up to it but that's about the extent of this place. Doors are locked and it's in the middle of a traffic circle. Pretty building though I suppose.

We noticed this unique looking structure while driving through Fayetteville. We researched its history and visited it the following day before heading home. The upstairs museum does show some its history and is worth a visit. The staff was not very friendly or helpful during our visit. Be sure and research its history before visiting.

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.
