Fayette County News moving office to downtown F’ville

After nearly two decades in their office off Jeff Davis Place, the Fayette County News has found a new home nearer to the square in downtown Fayetteville. 

After many years in their earlier location on Church Street, the local institution since 1886 moved to the building on Jeff Davis Place when the Church St. building burned down in January 2003. 

The county’s legal organ and its only print newspaper, the Fayette County News is now relocating its operations to Lanier Avenue West, within walking distance of the old courthouse and the new city hall under construction. 

“As we enter a new era at the newspaper, we’re thrilled to be right in the middle of it all as the center of Fayetteville continues to grow,” said owner and publisher Geneva Weaver. 

The new office is located at 224 Lanier Avenue West. The Fayette County News can be reached via phone at 770-461-6317.
