Regarding McKinney-Williams-Pitts House. Excerpt from Fayetteville Historic Houses Tour:
Dr. Charles McKinney built this house as a wedding gift for one of his daughters. When the house was built, Dr. McKinney planted a tree seedling that had been imported from England by a preacher. That sprig, a rare copper beech, grew into a tree which still stands at the north front corner of the house. In later years the house was the longtime residence of Abednego "Beddie" Williams and family of the Williams Lumber Company. The property is now the home of the Rudy Pitts family.
