In the middle of the 18th century, Scottish settlers made their way up the Cape Fear River and settled at a place which they called Cross Creek. This town eventually merged with the nearby settlement called Campbell- ton to form the City of Fayetteville in 1783. Where did I learn this? I visited the museum on the second floor of Downtown Fayette- ville's famous Market House, Fayetteville's only National Historic Landmark. Featuring old maps and pillars inscribed with informa- tion, the Market House tells the story of how the little Scottish township grew into the seat of Cumberland County . . . . . . -Evan Young , Communications Intern, Summer 2018 Read the rest of Evan's blog at GoFayetteville.com CULTURAL HERITAGE TRAILS Interested in learning more about the commu- nity's history?
