Downtown Fayette has blossomed …
Fayette County was created on December 20, 1824, from portions of Tuscaloosa and Marion counties. The county was named for General Lafayette, who was touring Alabama during the county’s formation. It is located in the northwest-central section of the state, and the City of Fayette is the county seat.
As early as 1821, a small village existed at the present Old Town (near Five Points) called La Fayette. From that location, settlers could see out over the Sipsey River Valley. Over the years, that village became present-day Fayette.
Today, Fayette is a flourishing city with abundant natural resources and outstanding industries. It is a city with a glorious past, a prosperous present, and an excellent future.
