The land that is now Fayetteville was settled originally by Scottish immigrants, in Campbelltown in 1762. In 1783, that town and Cross Creek were combined and renamed Fayetteville, after the French General Marquis de Lafayette. General Marquis de Lafayette aided the colonies in their fight for independence.
The University of North Carolina, which is America's oldest state university, was chartered in Fayetteville, in 1789. In 1918, Fort Bragg was established. Pope Air Force base is now adjacent to Fort Bragg. Both of these military bases are important to the economy of Fayetteville.
