This area was orginally developed because of transportation needs. WE are at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. This museum tells that key to our history plus lots of interesting tidbits, like a 1950's gas station, info on hotels - steam boat travel, etc.

Very small, but good history and nice to go learn about. There is a train that runs directly behind the museum and if you're lucky you will see it while there.

Very nicely done in an old building adjacent to Cape Fear Studio in downtown Fayetteville. The tour is self guided and the entrance is free. If you come to Fayetteville I suggest you visit it.

This was a quaint museum with really nice history about Fayetteville. I was impressed! The staff was very courteous! I would not suggest bringing small children because it's just not on their level.

We loved this museum--not so much be aisle of its main area but because of the annex. The docent In the main area was just behind the desk. But at the annex, the man there was wonderful and interacted with my kids!!!!

My husband and I enjoyed a few hours respite from the heat in this quaint local museum. It's a little confusing to find the side entrance and if it were not for cars in the lot the many locked doors would make the building to...More

This museum is chock full of history. There was a lot of information about the Marquis de Lafayette, which I found particularly interesting. There were a lot of quality pieces throughout the museum. Everything from the American Revolution to World War II. It was also...More
