Buy Gold and Silver in Lafayette, LA

Lafayette is the fourth largest city in Louisiana and the only large city for many miles. It was settled in the 1700s by the French-speaking Acadians, who christened it Vermilionville. They were later joined by descendants of African, European, and West Indian explorers known as Creoles. These unique cultures greatly influenced the city, which is now known as the heart of Cajun country.
