Fayette celebrates 200th anniversary

Shown is the Fayette crest/flag that was designed by Shirley Garrison during Fayette’s Sesquicentennial Celebration in 1971.

The City of Fayette will celebrate its bicentennial (200th anniversary) as an incorporated city on Jan. 15, 2021. Fayette was first incorporated on Jan. 15, 1821 as “Fayette Court House.” The name has changed many times throughout the years, and the central location of the town has also shifted from its original geographic location. The town was originally called Lafayette, but due to other towns bearing the same name, the town was incorporated as Fayette Court House.
