Want to explore Lafayette’s 1824-1825 travels outside of Fayetteville? Check out the national Lafayette Trail, a project which is mapping Lafayette’s travels all over the country. Historical markers (with costs generously underwritten by the Pomeroy Foundation) are going to be placed along the trail. Fayetteville’s marker was dedicated on March 5, 2021 – 196 years to the day that Lafayette visited!
