One of the books I read while researching the Market House was “The Story of Fayetteville” by John Oates. This book went over how the Market House was the town’s market at the time, and how goods and groceries were sold there to the public, much like what we have today. However, today we have Food Lions, Walmarts, Harris Teeters, and plenty more. Not only was the Market House a place to sell items and goods to the public, but it was also used to auction slaves.
