Historic Walks

The historical society has developed several historic walking tours.

Historic Fayetteville Hike

Download a Historic Hike of Fayetteville Map PDF showing more than two dozen historic buildings in the downtown part of Fayetteville, from the state’s first public school for African American students to the busy downtown square to the area in which about 1,100 Cherokees camped when they were forced west to the Indian Territory. The map was printed in 2014 in part through a grant from the Fayetteville Area Community Foundation.
