Fayetteville was located on "Bell's Route" which was one of the routes used during the infamous "Trail of Tears" which was the forced removal of members of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole fribes from their homelands to reservations to the west. This plaque commemorates that event.
Fayetteville is located in Southern Tennessee, West of Chattanooga and North of Huntsville, Alabama. It has a population of over 7000 and is the county seat of Lincoln County. Lincoln County was formed in 1809. I think, the Lincoln County Courthouse has a simple elegance.
Even though it was built a fair amount later, from what I understand, the Fayetteville City Hall has a similar architectural style to the courthouse.
Much more uncommon is this monument to the women who stayed behind and ran the farms and businesses in the south as the men fought the Civil War.
There is also a civil war memorial on the courthouse grounds. This memorial has the standing soldier motif which appears to be the most common type of civial war memorial.
There is a nice Veterans Memorial on the courthouse grounds honoring all those who have served and especially those who died in various wars and conflicts.
These stones were moved from a business on Franklin Avenue to the Lincoln County Courthouse, and were used by early settlers to stand on to help them mount their horses.
This impressive and pretty monument was constructed in 2009 to celebrate the bicentennial of Lincoln County which was formed in 1809.
Fayetteville has an interesting historic district with several buildings of historic and architectural interest including the Lincoln Theater.
