Fayette Junction is an unincorporated community in Fayetteville Township, Washington County, Arkansas, United States.[1] It is located in south Fayetteville near the intersection of Arkansas Highway 265 and the Burlington Railroad line.[2]

The St. Louis – San Francisco Railway tracks running from Missouri to Texas intersected a short line railroad from St. Paul, Arkansas south of Fayetteville.[3] This junction became known as Fayette Junction. Today the short line no longer exists, and Fayette Junction is within the city limits of Fayetteville.
