One interesting story about the city is how it got its name. Initially, it was called Lafayette in honor of Marquis de Lafayette, Gilbert du Motier who was a French Revolutionary war champ. Eventually, the small town opened its doors to migrants, expanded the territory, and took the appellation Fayette Court House. The residents also felt like there were too many places in Alabama that bore the same name; that they had to adjust. The community was later coined as Fayetteville, which is a name being used by cartographers up to this day.
The county also adapted Fayette into its name, making it ‘Fayette County.’ During the construction of the railroad services, the town was teasingly called Frog Level or Fayette Depot Town. It happened when the residents rejected the idea of having tracks built in their area. This incident made the road murky most especially during rainy days, making the area at ‘frog level.’ It was a struggle for some passengers at that time, but none of them were bothered since they wanted to ride the train for the first time.
Businesses opened in the area, with a post office bearing the name Frog Level. It was changed to Alfreda when the second postmaster took over. The third postmaster changed it again, this time calling the office Icy, his daughter’s name. These repeating changes confused so many people, so they asked for an election over which name should the town be called. The town name Latona got the majority of the votes. It was called as such for seven years until the local government reverted it back to Fayette, sans the ‘la.’
