Fayetteville lies in the beautiful Ozark Mountains and is surrounded by lakes, rivers and trails perfect for cycling, hiking and boating. Mt. Sequoyah stands at an elevation of 1,700 feet above sea level, and commemorates the Cherokee chief who created his nation's language and translated the Bible for his people. The Headquarters House was constructed by Judge Jonas Tebbets. It provides a glimpse into Civil War history. The Ozark Military Museum features aircraft, vehicles and memorabilia celebrating the history of the military.
At night, the Arkansas Music Pavilion and Dickson Street & Downtown come alive with a variety of entertaining possibilities. The Razorback Transit system is a free bus service that travels through the downtown area and other specified locations. The Ozark Regional Transit buses also have routes outside Fayetteville. The main thoroughfares in the community are Interstate 49, US Highways 71 and 265. There are many hotels to choose from in Fayetteville, with plenty located along Interstate 95.
The Osage and Quapaw Native Americans lived on the land before the arrival of the Cherokee Nation. George McGarrah arrived in 1828, constructed a home and established a settlement in the humid but mild climate. Soon the location had a store, hotels and other homes. A newspaper office and school system were founded soon after. The community continued growing and today, Fayetteville is the home of a popular university and a number of industries.
