The focal point of downtown LaGrange is LaFayette Square, which is anchored by a bronze copy of Ernest Eugene Hiolle’s famous statue of the Marquis de LaFayette. LaGrange is named for the Marquis’s French country estate. The statue was placed in the square in 1976 and is on permanent loan to the city from LaGrange College.
