Museum of the Cape Fear

I love small town museums. Now Fayetteville, North Carolina is not really a small town and the Museum of the Cape Fear is in a big building but it has that small town feel. (Because of nearby Fort Bragg there are some Army museums here too. I already blogged about them.) Adjacent to the museum are the remains of an Arsenal. Originally a United States Federal Arsenal, it was abandoned to the Confederates. They used it for making ammo and repairing guns. It was destroyed by the Union Army during the Civil War.

    Hi Carl, thanks for the history tour. (A couple notes: the second last sentence is missing a word “They used . . .” and two slides have arsenal misspelled.)
