about the lafayette historical society Lafayette Historical Society (LHS) strives to link Lafayette's history to our lives today through a growing collection and on-going programs, publications, and exhibits that volunteers share with our schools and our community throughout the year.

With its enthusiastic membership of history buffs, local educators and interested citizens, the LHS has long collected and chronicled oral histories, treasured photographs and even Lafayette's beloved "Ol'Betsy," the community's original 1922 Model T fire truck.
