Place ~ The Market House, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 12/08

There is a lot of history on this structure in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Read my Flickr Market House Album for starters. Like it or not, the Market House, built 1832, is a National Historical Landmark. There is more history on the Internet. I have captured the Market House with cameras–the exterior in this post and the interior earlier. Refresh your browser to change the gallery. Many more pictures.

History ~ Point News [Hay & Old Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina], 12/04

Point News

Try as I might, I could not remember the name of the business at this location in the ’50s & ’60s. I ask a friend at the guy [Rev. Bernard Hayes]. He remembered–Point News. Research and “voila” and I find history and the photograph above. Below are pictures I took recently at the intersection of Hay and Old Streets–across from the United Methodist Church. The building at the point dates back to 1853 and housed the Fayetteville Mutual Insurance Company.
