Preserving the Lasting Legacy of Lafayette

About Lafayette History Museum

Located in Old Town Lafayette, Colorado, Lafayette History Museum showcases the dynamic history of the area, from its roots in mining and farming to the century-old Lincoln Highway effort to Lafayette’s recent growth into a vibrant city with its own unique identity.

Through our exhibits, educational programming, walking tours, field trips for students, research material, and more, we preserve and share the fascinating stories of Lafayette’s evolution.

Housed in the Lewis Home, an 1890s coal miner’s cottage that is on the National Register of Historic Places, the museum appeals to adults and children alike. Visit us to enjoy engaging exhibits, original artifacts, and a chance to step into the past and see how it has shaped our present and future.
