Lafayette History

Lafayette is a city in Contra Costa County, California, United States. As of 2010, the city’s population was 23,893. It was named after the Marquis de Lafayette, a French military hero of the American Revolutionary War.

One of the original settlers in Brown’s party was Milo J. Hough. He built a hotel in 1853 near Plaza Park and in 1854 was named postmaster of the Acelanus post office, probably an alternate spelling of the original land grant, Acalanes. The post office was short-lived, closing the following year.

It has established a great selection of local private and public schools, which is one of the reasons Lafayette, CA real estate is a smart choice.
