CUMBERLAND COUNTY

HOPE MILLS

Hope Mills mixes old and new in the best way. Less than eight miles southwest of
Fayetteville, the town has new shopping centers and state-of-the-art entertainment
complexes alongside historic districts and stories that stretch back to the areaÕs
humble beginnings. From the 1760s, lumber, cotton, sawmills, and grist mills cropped
up along the areaÕs many streams and creeks. No doubt, the number of mills lent to
the naming of Hope Mills in 1885 and its incorporation as an official town in 1891. Today
you can visit the Millstone entertainment complex, Fantasy Lake Water Park, or play
a round of putt-putt where the sport itself was created! For more information visit

SPRING LAKE

Fantasy Lake Water Park - Hope Mills

Just outside the northern gates of Fort Bragg lies the town of Spring Lake.
Incorporated in 1951, Spring LakeÕs history is one of sleepy beginnings before explosive
growth. Operating as a small town with a sawmill and a rail line, Spring Lake didnÕt
boom until the middle of the 20th century. Often called ÒFreedomÕs Base Camp,Ó
Spring Lake is home to many military families and Fort BraggÕs servicemen and
women. Area favorites are the Sandhill Farmers Market, watersports on the Lower
Little River, tee time at Anderson Creek Golf Course, or skeet and trap shooting at
one of the nationÕs largest shooting facilities, The Clay Target Center. Visit the town
website at Spring-Lake.org for more information.

COUNTY MUNICIPALITIES
Cumberland County is also home to a number of small towns that remind you why
hospitality thrives in the South. The municipalities of Wade, Eastover, Stedman, Linden,
Falcon, and Godwin all bring their own special something to Cumberland County.
These small towns range in population from 200 to 3,000 people and are home to
historically significant landmarks, quaint local restaurants, and the most manicured
and lush small parks and gardens that you ever did see.

Anderson Creek - Spring Lake

Visit Old Bluff Church in Wade to view its two silver Communion goblets maintained
since the 1770s or Ellerslie Plantation in Linden, where both Union and Confederate
soldiers were quartered, at separate times, during the Civil WarÕs Battle of Averasboro.
Falcon is home to famed Octagon Tabernacle, a unique octagonal church structure
built in 1898 by town founder Julius Culbreth and listed on the National Register of
Historic Places.
Take a stroll through Godwin Presbyterian ChurchÕs lovely Friendship Garden in
Godwin, or enjoy a warm day at Talley Woodlands Park in Eastover, where rumor
has it that the first ever ÒroundÓ of golf played in the New World took place in a
field in the early 1700s.
After visiting the historic post office and train depot in Stedman, refuel at their
mom-and-pop soda shop serving up all the classic favorites with our own special
Carolina flair.
