Archives Student Spotlight | Fayetteville History: The Market House (10.16.2014)

Written by: Bianca Monroe, Student

Edited by: Amber Covington, Archives Assistant

             One of the books I read while researching the Market House was “The Story of Fayetteville” by John Oates. This book went over how the Market House was the town’s market at the time, and how goods and groceries were sold there to the public, much like what we have today. However, today we have Food Lions, Walmarts, Harris Teeters, and plenty more. Not only was the Market House a place to sell items and goods to the public, but it was also used to auction slaves.

            While I was growing up as a child, my friends and I always heard that the Market House sold slaves, and that was basically it. We were mainly told this by parents I think, and sometimes even teachers. It was clear while doing my research that the Market House had more to offer, and slaves were not necessarily sold there, but they were auctioned off, usually when the owner or master had passed away, or to usually clear debt. While I was reading the text, there were many advertisements throughout the book showing how slave owners were broadcasting the auctioning of slaves.

            I was very interested in “The Story of Fayetteville.” I think that it had a lot of interesting things throughout the book on the Market House. It gave me more of a clear view of the Market House, and although slavery can never be turned into a good thing, I think that the Market House was a very good example on telling me what it was like to be living in Fayetteville in the 1800’s with plenty of descriptions and visuals.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks  |  On Display for #HispanicHeritageMonth: “When I Was Puerto Rican” by #EsmeraldaSantiago















From the publisher: “[The author’s] story begins in rural Puerto Rico, where her warring parents and seven siblings led a life of uproar, but one full of love and tenderness as well. Growing up, Esmeralda learned the proper way to eat a guava, the sound of the tree frogs in the mango groves at night, the taste of the delectable sausage called morcilla, and the formula for ushering a dead baby’s soul to heaven. But just when Esmeralda seemed to have learned everything, she was taken to New York City, where the rules - and the language - were bewilderingly different. How Esmeralda overcame adversity, won acceptance to New York City’s High School of Performing Arts, and then went on to Harvard, where she graduated with highest honors, is a record of a tremendous journey by a truly remarkable woman.”





















For #HispanicHeritageMonth, Dr. Lenora Hayes organized two displays #InsideChesnuttLibrary. Her displays feature books written by or about people of Hispanic descent. Dr. Hayes is the Assistant Chair of the Department of World Languages and Cultures Department.













#HispanicHeritageMonth is from September 15th - October 15th.

This book examines how the dollar came to have a central role in the world economy and demonstrates that it will remain the cornerstone of global finance for the foreseeable future.”
