Easy find just off I-95 north of Fayetteville; small battle, excellent museum and very nice folks greeting you. Good driving map takes you to six pull-ins with informative boards. Very quite and rural area, well worth visiting and an easy connection with the larger Bentonville battle site north and other side of I-95.

We were not expecting as much info and artifacts compared to what was at this museum! Great stop while travelling down 95 and clean restrooms to boot. Free to enter but would have gladly paid to see all this place had to offer. Donations are accepted and historians on site who are very knowledgeable! Definitely worth the stop and we... More

Spend some time looking at relics from the civil war and get a history lesson from the historian on duty. They shared plenty of local facts about the battlefields and area homes. Look for the many bullets, confederate money,cannonballs,belt buckels and guns. Worth the stop. Clean bathrooms and gift shop.

They have some neat monuments. The Cemetery is sobering and well maintained. The period slave cabin is neat! Definitely a must see if in the... More

It is definitely not worth a special trip. It is a TINY museum, nothing to see outdoors really. A cemetery walking distance and was over. Now, if you are driving towards Fayeteville and or you are planning on going to Bentoville Battlefield, then does not hurt to drive. If you are a bullet admirer you may enjoy. They have different...

We visited Averasboro on a Saturday. No one else was in the fields or museum with us, so we enjoyed running around with our dogs in the area while reading the signposts and appreciating some American history.

The grounds and graveyard are really interesting to see but the museum is not well-maintained and the viewpoints and sympathy towards the Confederacy is evident. Interesting stop if you get a chance.

This is one historical sight we found easily as the the signs are there for you. What a lovely museum with so much info and artefacts. The area is spotless and obviously cared for with love and respect. The cemetery up the road is the same but not alot of graves or info as they seemed to be mass graves... More
