Welcome to the Town of Lafayette official website.

We are located in the south east corner of Chippewa County which is well known as apple orchard country.  Per the 2010 Census our population is 5,765 residents.

Lake Wissota, a reservoir created in 1917, is surrounded on the south by our town.  The lake is a popular recreation destination for boating, canoeing, fishing, water skiing, and swimming.
