Chambers County was established in 1832. The county officials elected in 1832 chose to locate the county seat as close as possible to the county center. The auctioned lots for the new town were held in October 1833. Proceeds from the sale funded the construction of a jail and a courthouse. Although the original name of the town was "Chambersville", the name was changed to Lafayette on January 7, 1835. This was due to Johnson J. Hooper's influence, who created a fictional character named Captain Simon Suggs. A backwoods Southerner, Simon Suggs pronounced the town's name "La Fait". The LaFayette Sun was established as a newspaper under the name The Alabama Standard. It adopted its current name on August 3, 1881.
