Introduction to Fayetteville, North Carolina
The city of Fayetteville is located in the south-central part of North Carolina, about 60 miles south of the state capital of Raleigh. As the county seat of Cumberland County, Fayetteville is probably best known for being the home of the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg, a post from which thousands of elite paratroopers regularly deploy on high-priority missions worldwide. Located about 12 miles northwest of the city, Fort Bragg was originally established as a field artillery base in 1918 and evolved during World War II into a training ground for the nation’s Airborne Divisions. Fort Bragg today itself bears many similarities to a city, employing hundreds of thousands and creating an economic impact numbering in the billions annually.
Fayetteville has a regional airport with connection carrier service to nearby southern and eastern cities including Charlotte, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. Fayetteville is also home to two major colleges: Fayetteville Technical Community College and Fayetteville State University. The city has a strong, diverse and viable local economy that supports both manufacturing and agricultural businesses.
