Market House is one of the few structures which employ the England made town hall-market scheme in America. Located in*Fayetteville, North Carolina, Meat and produce was once sold under the open first floor arcade. While, the second floor once serves as the town hall and general meeting place. The cupola bell still rings for breakfast, dinner, sundown, and curfew period.*

It was completed in 1832 and was built on the ruins of the old State House and served as a town market until 1906. Slaves were once sold there before it was abolished. It served as Town Hall of Fayetteville until 1907. And in 1973, it was declared as a*National Historic Landmark. The City Council is now considering turning the Market House into a local history museum.
