On your 45-minute tour, you will travel to numerous sites where scenes from our city’s colorful and rich past have unfolded. Your tour guide will discuss sites connected with our city’s founding more than 250 years ago, our role in the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, and Fayetteville’s building boom that followed the coming of the railroad. This is a fun way to learn more about your city, especially if you are new to this area. And even if you have lived here a long time, you will be surprised at the new things you will discover! If you have out-of-town guests, this is a great way to entertain them as you explore our historic downtown.
Horses and driver are provided by S and S Carriage Rides, professionals who have been doing tours and weddings for many years. They use heavy-duty draft horses bred for pulling, and they follow strict safety guidelines for their “babies.” Their “limousine wagon” is very comfortable, and the overhead canopy will protect you from the weather.
The remaining dates of the Historic Tours of Olde Fayetteville by Horse and Carriage are October 13 and November 10 from 1pm to 6pm.
