The Capitol


The Capitol, also known as The Capitol Department Store, is a historic department store building located at 216 Hay Street, in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

The original store was established at this site in 1921, with an existing two-story building incorporated into it in 1936. In 1949, the existing building was doubled in size by a large rear addition. The most notable feature is the 60-foot wide Modern Movement storefront added in 1955.

It features marble facing, a recessed storefront, a large convex full-height window in the second story, and large aluminum script lettering for The Capitol. The Capitol, the last department store remaining in downtown Fayetteville, closed in March 1990.
