                Fayetteville is a welcome site for history buffs, too. During the attack on Federal forces here in 1863, Milton W. Humphreys, the educator, soldier, and the gunner of Bryant’s Battery 13th Virginia Light Artillery C.S.A., was the first to use indirect firing . Indirect firing is in universal use by the military today. There are historic homes and other structures to observe, as well.

                Fayetteville offers a wide variety of stores and some of the finest restaurants in the state.

                Having grown up in Fayetteville, I have experienced small town living at its best. I invite you to visit our town with its pleasant neighborhoods, many churches, and friendly people.
