Lafayette County
Situated in the southwest corner of the state is Lafayette County, which was created by the act of October 15, 1827, from part of Hempstead County, and was named for the Marquis de Lafayette, who came from France and fought on the side of the Americans in the Revolutionary war. It is bounded on the north by Hempstead and Nevada counties; on the east by Columbia County; on the south by the State of Louisiana, and on the west by the Red River, which separates it from Miller County.
The county seat is Lewisville
