LaFayette, located near the Alabama/Georgia line on Interstate 85 was built when “Cotton was King” and the grandeur of that era is still evident in this quiet little town with no traffic, and yet, it is situated right in the mist of all kinds of exciting cultural and recreational opportunities. The historic Courthouse was featured on the cover of Alabama Architecture and was used in the movie, Mississippi Burning”. The museum is situated in the old Train Station. Robert Trent Jones golf or West Point Lake fishing or Auburn football is less than 20 minutes away. Callaway Gardens and Little White House in Warm Springs are 45 minutes away. Atlanta with its international airport, Alabama Shakespeare Festival and Talladega International Motor Speedway are within 1 ½ hours. The Alabama and Florida panhandle beaches are only four hours away and the mountains of north Georgia and southwestern North Carolina are even closer.
Stay at Maple Hill Guest House & Gardens, the estate of a past prominent judge, and explore LaFayette’s past and present. Take a walking and/or driving tour of LaFayette’s historic places. Throughout the tour you will see homes that date back to the 1800’s, commercial buildings that have gracefully adjusted to the changing times and public buildings that have been preserved and some tastefully expanded to accommodate the demands of the present while retaining their historical heritage.
