Fayetteville is the county seat of Cumberland County, North Carolina and is best known as the home of Fort Bragg, a major U.S. Army installation northwest of the city.
Fayetteville has received the prestigious All-America City Award from the National Civic League three times. With an estimated population of 374,157, the Fayetteville metropolitan area is the largest in southeastern North Carolina, and the fifth-largest in the state.
The best-known public buildings including the old “State House” were lost in the Great Fire of 1831. The next year the Market House was rebuilt on the site of the old State House and it housed the Town Hall on its second floor until 1907.
This current location (433 Hay Street) has housed City Hall since 2007.
