Lafayette, CO Homes for Sale
Lafayette has an intriguing history rooted in mining and agriculture. The spirit of this unique city sparks from city's founder, Mary Miller, the widow of a farmer and mother of six children, who transcended the stereotypes of her era in the late 1800's by establishing one of the largest coal mines in the area. She also founded the town of Lafayette in memoriam Lafayette Miller, her late husband. The 25,000+ residents of Lafayette love the shops, restaurants, and attractions along Public Rd, which runs through the middle of the Old Town historic district. The city is known for its art galleries, trade shops, trails, and events like the Lafayette Peach Festival, which takes place in August. The city covers the spectrum in terms of lifestyles from low-maintenance townhomes to master-planned single-family neighborhoods to rural properties zoned for horses and other livestock. Lafayette is located southeast of Boulder. It affords its residents quick access to Boulder (20 minutes), Denver (30 minutes), and the Denver International Airport (35 minutes), while also providing folks with all of the great benefits of living in a smaller community.
