Fayetteville, Texas

Fayetteville is halfway between Austin and Houston, and is about an hour and a half drive from each of the cities.

Fayetteville is located in the "heart of antique shopping" area.   They have some of the "best bass fishing anywhere" in the 2400-acre Lake Fayette nearby.   This is a great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.   When you visit one time, you will want to go back again and again.

This settlement of Fayetteville was established by three families of Austin's Old Three Hundred, and was originally a stagecoach stop for travelers.  The town was named Fayetteville in 1844 and was later incorporated in 1882.  There are many historic markers and plaques around the courthouse square.
