Located in the beautifully restored 1890 Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley Railroad Depot, the museum offers two floors of engaging, artifact-filled exhibits. The rich history of our area is told from prehistory through the early 20th century. Favorite spots in the museum include the model train room, the steamboat interactive, and the recreated Station Agent’s Office.

The annex continues Fayetteville’s story with automobiles and airplanes. Vintage cars, the recreated 1920s gas station, and Fayetteville’s 1880s Silsby Steam Pump Engine are a delight. Exhibit topics also include local law enforcement and fire department history, farm life, and the early years of Fort Liberty and Pope Army Air Field.
