Fayetteville, Arkansas

Fayetteville is a city in Washington County, Arkansas. Home of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville is a college town with a population of just over 73,500. Located in a high valley of the Ozark Mountains, Fayetteville boasts dozens of parks and miles of hiking trails in scenic settings. The downtown Dickson Street area offers shops, restaurants and entertainment, including the Walton Arts Center. Fayetteville also has numerous historical sites, many of them predating the Civil War, ranging from the 1853 Headquarters House to the Clinton House, former home of Bill and Hilary Clinton.

Fayetteville was settled in 1828, and originally named Washington Courthouse. The present name was chosen the following year to avoid confusion with a nearby town already named Washington. As the county seat, Fayetteville quickly developed as a center of business and government, with a law office, hotels, shops, and a bank by 1838. Agriculture, notably apples, also formed a key part of the economy. During the Civil War, Union troops headquartered in Fayetteville were attacked unsuccessfully several times by Confederate forces. In 1867, Fayetteville was incorporated as a city. The University of Arkansas was founded in 1871 as Arkansas Industrial University. The post-Civil War period saw increased industrialization, with the establishment of a foundry, a commercial bakery, and railroads. In 1914, the Aaron Poultry and Egg Company was established, and was eventually acquired by the Campbell Soup Company in 1955. Campbell's still operates a plant in Fayetteville. Today Fayetteville is focusing more on environmental development and research. The Fayetteville Public Library has just moved into a new "green" building, and the Fayetteville Research and Technology Park is a center for alternative energy research and businesses. Residents also commute to larger employers just outside Fayetteville, such as Wal-Mart and Tyson Foods.
