The Fayette County Historical Society was chartered as a nonprofit corporation in July 1971. Our purpose is to discover, collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public, materials which establish and illustrate the history of this country, its cities, towns, villages, and institutions.
We endeavor to instill interest in our heritage and our Fayette families. Knowledge and research of the past is not only significantly gratifying, but it allows us to connect to all of those who, day-by-day lived their lives and created the growth and development that we see today. All of this was set in motion from the early 1820s.
