Fayetteville, NC has a lot of fun facts that many of our own residents don’t know, so today I thought why not share what I know about our great city!


Fayetteville got its name from the Marquis de Lafayette and Fayetteville is the only city he visited in 1875. In fact the carriage he rode in is on display in one of our local museums.


General Sherman marched in and attacked Fayetteville in March 1865. He destroyed a confederate arsenal that was located in the area as well as the Fayetteville Observer office.
