Lafayette, CO was once a small coal-mining town that sprouted up in the 1860’s, when Mary Elizabeth Miller and her husband Lafayette bought a 240-acre farm. They dug two mineshafts that produced 1,000 tons of coal/day and in 1884, the richest vein of coal in the Boulder Valley was discovered on the Miller Ranch. Named after Lafayette Miller, the town was incorporated in 1889 with its economy based on coal mining.
