Vintage/historical home on a large corner lot within walking distance of the Fayetteville square and courthouse. Built sometime in the late 1800's it has a varied history from being a single-family residence, a B & B and a rest home. Most recently it was a family home configured to be a master suite on the main floor with the upstairs completely dedicated to the kids. The upstairs looks like it can be reconfigured to meet the future buyer's needs. Tall ceilings and wood floors are just some of the interior highlights. The back yard is privacy fenced on two sides
I am blessed to live in Fayetteville TX, a small city – yes I said city – of approximately 258 voting residents. Fayetteville is filled with some amazing vintage and historic homes and we own one of them! Yesterday when I was driving to the post office ( three blocks away! ) I stopped and took some quick photos of some of the beautiful front porches of Fayetteville. People love to spend time on their porches and they love to decorate them for holidays too. We are in between 4th of July and Labor Day so there is still a bit of a patriotic theme about town, but you will always find flags flying no matter what time of year. Fayettevillians proudly fly the American and Texas flags.
Fayetteville is a popular spot for people looking to retire, there is a strong second home market, and there are investment opportunities. Being a Fayettevillian and a Realtor I would love to help both Buyers and Sellers meet their Real Estate Goals. Please contact me if you would like more information on my services.
I am Docenting today at the Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum which is located at 1119 N Washington Street on the historic square here in Fayetteville Texas. The museum was establisehd in may of 1986 by Janette Donaldson, Louis “Buddy” Polansky and his wife Irene. I love spending time here. So much to see and learn about the rich Czech and German peoples who settled in this area.
The Museum has Archival programs that include Acquisitions, Preservation, Oral History Collection, and Research, and they have Educational Programs such as Permanent and Rotating Exhibits, Demonstrations and Genealogy.
The hours vary but the Museum is open most Saturday’s from 11 am to 2pm. There is no Admission but Donations are appreciated. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an Adult. There are Free tours for School Groups available.
