The Willamette Valley has much to offer those fortunate enough to live here - and Lafayette is situated in the heart of it all. Much of our original historic charm and small town friendliness still exists. If you want a lifestyle without the pressures of big city living, the slower pace, low crime levels, affordable housing, abundant parks, and surrounding scenic beauty of Lafayette may be ideal for you.

Enviable lifestyle. The Willamette Valley is a beautiful place to call home. You’ll find a variety of wineries, concerts, events, forests, lakes and scenic golf courses provide the backdrop for an enjoyable lifestyle.  From your residence in Lafayette, big cities, snowy mountains or coastal beaches are just a short drive away.
