Fayette Public Library, Museum and Archives

In 1938, the City of La Grange purchased a 1,500 hundred volume private library housed in the historic Stiehl home. By the mid 1970’s the “little old library” held a collection of nearly 10,000 items and could hold no more. Construction of a new library, museum, and archives complex began in 1976 as a community project during the American Bicentennial. The new facility was dedicated in April 1978.
