Museum of Cape Fear

A Civil War Camp at the Museum of the Cape Fear in Fayetteville

From an early influx of Scottish settlers to the dominance of  military bases today, North Carolina's southeastern region is place with many stories to tell. Fayetteville's Museum of the Cape Fear mirrors that diversity and offers you the chance to explore many facets of our state's history.

Without ever leaving the museum's grounds you step insides the 1897 home of a prosperous Cumberland County businessman, explore the ruins of the Civil War-era Fayetteville Arsenal and experience exhibits covering the region's American Indian roots and eventual industrial development.
