Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Fayetteville, North Carolina
Located in North Carolina’s Coastal Plain region on the Cape Fear River, Fayetteville is the county seat of Cumberland County with a population of about 200,000. Original settlers arrived from the Highlands of Scotland in 1739. By 1783, the area’s two early settlements, Campbellton and Cross Creek, converged and were officially named Fayetteville. Fayetteville is best known as the home of Fort Bragg, a United States Army post located just northwest of the city center.
By the turn of the 20th century, Fayetteville had matured into a center of government and commerce because of its location on an inland port of the Cape Fear River. The city also served as a hub of the southeastern “plank roads” system, which was the key to overland travel at the time. In 1916, Fayetteville’s first skyscraper was constructed and two years later, the federal government authorized construction of the largest Army base in the country, Fort Bragg. The original camp included Pope Air Force Base, named in honor of First Lieutenant Harley Pope who was killed while flying nearby. In later years the camp established Fort Bragg Hospital, a medical facility that remains in Fayetteville to this day under the name of Womack Army Medical Center. Fayetteville continues to experience growth and development largely thanks to the city’s large military establishments and service industry.
