FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WVNS) — The town of Fayetteville announced the publishing of the History of Fayetteville Sesquicentennial 1872-2022 book written by Lewis A. Cook, Town Historian.

“When taking office in 2019, this wasn’t something expected but once discovered Council was excited to share with our community. The Town Council is appreciative of Lewis Cook’s drive to preserve our history and proud to partner with him to present this book to future generations,” Mayor Sharon Cruikshank said.

“Writing about the history of this community has been an extraordinary experience. Hopefully, it will, in some way, provide some knowledge to its citizens of how it became the great community that is today much loved and enjoyed,” Dr. Lewis Cook stated.
