The Haymount Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, and a boundary increase was listed in 2006. Portions of the content on this web page were adapted from a copy of the original nomination documents.
The primarily residential Haymount Historic District is located approximately one mile west of the city center at Market Square and is connected to it by Hay Street, one of the four main axes radiating from the downtown square. The Haymount Historic District is situated on the steep incline which connects lands near the river bottoms with those of the elevated western regions. When it was developing in the nineteenth century, Haymount — the name which by 1801 was fixed to these elevated lands — bordered but was situated outside of the city limits. It was not until approximately 1910 that lower Haymount residences on Hale Street, Brandt’s Lane, Hillside Avenue, Athens Avenue, and Hay Street up to Fountainhead Lane were incorporated into the city limits. What was once a sparsely settled area with scattered but substantial houses is now a full-fledged suburban neighborhood with a total of forty-one dwellings.
The dwellings were constructed in a 130-year time span — between c.1817 and c.1950 — and together form one of Fayetteville’s oldest and most cohesive neighborhoods. The structures parallel the general architectural and historical development of the area and represent a full range of styles from Federal and Greek Revival to Bungalow and Colonial Revival.
