Photo of Lafayette Cemetery
Lafayette's cemetery was established on 4-1/2 acres of hillside property owned by Medford Gorham. In 1874, he sold the property for $100 to the Cemetery Corporation which was chaired by Elam Brown. The Corporation fenced the property and located the roads as they presently exist. The original Death and Burial Record Book, still on file in the cemetery caretaker's building, shows names of the deceased, date and cause of death, plus age and place of death. A complete copy of the book is in the Lafayette Historical Society file in the Lafayette library. In 1937, the Alamo-Lafayette Cemetery District was formed with county taxation to ensure perpetual care.
