About the County / Lafayette County Jail Inmate Search

In 1856, the county was officially established as a separate entity from Madison County. The county’s namesake is Maruis de Lafayette, who was a general in the Revolutionary War who helped get the necessary aid from his home country, France, to turn the tide in the losing battles.

The county seat was moved to Mayo in 1893 after the courthouse in New Troy, the original seat location, burned down in 1892. The county now has plenty of parks and access to the Suwannee River which forms its eastern border. The county also has a public library that serves some of the surrounding counties. The county’s total area is 548 square miles, of which 543 is land and 4.5 is water. In addition, the county is home to a detention center that houses inmates.
