History:  

LAFAYETTE Township, settled in 1853 and organized May 11, 1858, was named, like townships and villages or cities of 20 other states of the Union, with counties of six states, in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834) of France, who came to America and greatly aided Washington in the Revolutionary War and later was an eminent French statesman and general. The city of this name, in sections 1, 2, and 11, was platted on August 22, 1896, and incorporated as a village May 11, 1900. John Bush and his family came in 1854 and kept a "stopping place" for travelers, where the first post office was located in 1858, discontinuing in 1870. The village became a trading center when the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad was built through in October 1895, and the post office was reestablished in 1897.
