Abstract This book tells the story of how North Carolina Methodists, civic leaders in Fayetteville, and hundreds of other visionaries took a senior, co-educational, liberal arts college to national prominence. Methodist University was built from 1958-60 on the west bank of the Cape Fear River about five miles north of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Native Americans and Scottish immigrants once grew corn and cotton on this land. Fifty years of fascinating facts were gleaned from the archives of Methodist University, The North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, oral history interviews, and local and state news media.
