Description: Photograph of the base of a lamp post on the ground of the Fayette County Courthouse in La Grange. It reads: "County Heritage: Fayette County was settled by members of the Old Three-Hundred, and created from Bastrop and Colorado Counties. It was named for the Marquis de LaFayette, and the county seat for his chateau in France. With dedication and perseverance, our forefathers gave the county its rich heritage and a prominent place in history. The Mier Expedition and Dawson's Company contributed to its early historical background, and the remains of these courageous men now lie on Monument Hill. The county has contributed many of its young men to keep the peace of this great nation, and this edifice will stand as a monument to their loyalty, courage, and sacrifice."
