The Fayetteville Arsenal and Armory

The Fayetteville Arsenal and Armory was one of several along the Atlantic seaboard intended to store arms for quick and systematized distribution. Such a facility was part of a growing concern for national defense following the War of 1812. Construction began in 1838 but would not be completed until 1859 due to insufficient funds and lack of skilled labor.
