It was founded in 1821 as Vermilionville by Jean Mouton, a French-speaking Acadian. Not long after it was founded the town was renamed after General Lafayette, the hero of the Revolution. Its economy was based heavily on agriculture until the early 1940’s, when it shifted (quite rapidly) to oil and natural gas. Today, however, Lafayette is based mostly on tourism, and it actually has one of the highest numbers of restaurants per capita of any city in the United States.
