This house was built for Waymon B. and Irene Felker Hollingsworth in 1906 as a wedding gift from Irene’s father, Mr. George Walton Felker of Monroe. Located in the heart of Fayetteville’s historic downtown, this 4,200 square foot home is graced with 12-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, hardwood floors, and a wide verandah. The grand staircase, beautifully carved mantles in mahogany and oak, stained glass windows, featuring the family’s monogram, are original to the house.

Guests enter a formal center hall; to the right is the formal parlor and through pocket doors, the formal dining room. To the left is a spacious double parlor, with its sunroom. Restrooms and a fully equipped kitchen are located near the rear of the house. All rooms are beautifully furnished in period antiques.

The Hollingsworth House is a public events facility, owned and operated by the Fayetteville Downtown Development Authority. Rental proceeds fund both ongoing maintenance and improvements to the house as well as future projects to enhance Fayetteville’s Historic Main Street Program.
