If the pioneers of Lafayette could return to the Boulder County town today, they might not recognize the growing city as the small coal mining town that sprouted up during the late 1800's when Mary Elizabeth Miller and her husband, Lafayette, first mined the land. In 1868, the couple bought a 240-acre farm, dug two mine shafts that produced 1,000 tons of coal a day. When the town was formed in 1890, it was the largest coal-mining center in Boulder County.
Today, Lafayette, eleven miles east of Boulder and covering 8.6 square miles, boasts several shopping centers, industrial and business parks, residential subdivisions, library, rec center and 18-hole Indian Peaks golf course, designed by Hale Irwin.
The city has experienced rapid growth in recent years, with its population having burgeoned to over 24,000 in the past two decades. If you cherish the simplicity of a small town, but also yearn for the comforts and conveniences afforded by urban proximity, Lafayette may be the town for you.
