In determining what was eligible for landmark status, the City of Lafayette had to do some rigorous architectural surveys. These surveys are much more than just reviews of building trends through time, they are incredibly rich with material on Lafayette's past, what remains of it today, and what can be saved for the future. Take the time to download the surveys for a fascinating and in-depth look at how Lafayette came to be. The surveys were funded by the City of Lafayette and partially funded by a State Historical Grant awarded from the Colorado Historical Society.
