Fayetteville's First Historic Museum

Step back in time and enjoy one of
Fayetteville’s finest historical attractions.

The Greek revival antebellum house with its soaring columns has long been a city landmark. Through the years several famous families have occupied the property. Built in 1855, by the Holliday family, the house derives its name from the three main owners that dwelled there: John Stiles Holliday, a prominent physician in Fayetteville and uncle of the infamous John Henry “Doc” Holliday; Solomon Dawson Dorsey, a Colonel of the State Militia during the War Between the States who helped enlist volunteers for the Confederacy; and Robert E. Lee Fife, a former Fayetteville City Council member related to the last family to occupy the house as a residence.

It also shares an association with several well-known local historical figures such as Margaret Mitchell, Dr. Crawford Williamson Long and former Governor Dorsey.
