HISTORY

     FAYETTE COUNTY was one of the original three counties created from the former Kentucky County, Virginia by the Virginia Act in 1780, along with Jefferson and Lincoln counties, and which together separated from Virginia in 1792 to become the state of Kentucky. Fayette County then included land which makes up 37 present-day counties and portions of 7 others. It was reduced to its present boundaries in 1799. The county is named for the Marquis de Lafayette, who came to America to join the rebelling English colonies in the American Revolutionary War.
