I pass by this historic place of Fayetteville about three times a week. I really admire the folks responsible for the Christmas decorations because I enjoyed the lights and wreaths of the streets before and after the Markethouse in the middle of the round about streets. Thank you for saving this piece of history for us all.

This beautiful building sits in the middle of a lovely round-about surrounded by quaint buildings, shops, restaurants and lovely side streets. It is easy to imagine hundreds of people gathered here decades ago bartering over local wares, meats and vegetables. Clean, attractive, historic.

The markethoouse of Fayetteville is the downtown outdoor building that is the pillar of town, located on Hay Street, the main street of the town. It can be visited anytime, and it is an open space ideal to take pictures or as a meeting point because everybody knows where the market house is. During summer here is where are special... More

This is an old building that you can walk around and take some pictures. The upstairs was locked, so you have to read the signs to gather a little information. It doesn't take long to see. In less than 5 minutes that I was there, I was approached by three homeless looking people asking for money. Not really a place... More

Not impressed with the market house. Too concerned with watching my back with the shady folks downtown. I get the history significance of it all but just not a good place.

The fact that the site was where North Carolina signed was exciting to me as a history buff. However the upstairs of the building (what's up there) was locked so basically the only thing there were a few signs to read.
