Not much to do here

There really wasn't much to do here. We just drove around it, appreciated the architecture--had already learned the history--took some photos and kept driving.

A fantastic piece of Fayetteville's history, be sure to visit the small upstairs exhibits. Great place for iconic photos of Fayetteville. Don't miss the opportunity (twice a year) to view the sunrise thru the arches.

This historical spot was located in the middle of town square. What a fascinating reminder of where we have been and where we still need to go. The interior of the site offered a great shady spot and I really appreciated the bits of history that were captured on the plaques. There are lots of cute cafes and shop along... More

Old Town Fayetteville is a great place to walk and take in some history. There are nice, informative placards on all the important places of interest. The Markethouse is right in the middle, and as the photo shows there are good places to rest in the shade. On the downside, the square attracts vagrants and riffraff so you probably won't... More

At the city center situated in a round about is the Markethouse. Interesting building with some historical markers inside.

Definitely worthy of a look while in the downtown area. If you are in town during a festival you're likely to see local performers sharing their skills at the Fayetteville Market House. This is a beautifully constructed building on the former site of what served as the NC state house for a temporary period in the late 1700's. Our state... More

It's a sleepy town, with some very nice buildings on its main street, this one stands at the end of it.

The building is indeed in the center of town. The plaques on the walls do a very good job explaining how it was used and in what years

its nice to see, beautiful structure. its hard to believe at one point this is where we sold people. take a look into the history of the markethouse, see how far we have come as a county. it will take about 15 minutes to read everything it has to offer.

The Market House, at the center of Fayetteville downtown is beautiful! The archetecture is stunning and the history is what it is.....history!!! Some are upset that the Market still stands due to slaves being sold there at one time but I think that's ridiculous! It's history......be it good history or bad! You can't just pick and choose what happened in... More
