Sitting just off of Crenshaw Boulevard in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles, California is the charming, semi-gated, historic community of Lafayette Square. Regarded for its significant architecture and large homes, Lafayette Square was founded in 1913 by real estate developer, George L. Crenshaw.
The neighborhood is named for the French Marquis who fought alongside colonists in the American Revolutionary War, Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette; the son of one of France’s oldest families. The Marquis de Lafayette’s role was so pivotal in the American Revolutionary War that he was often said to have helped George Washington defeat the British. In fact, Lafayette believed in the colonists’ cause so much that when he learned that the Continental Congress lacked the funds to support his voyage to the New World he acquired the sailing ship, Victoire, with his own money. Lafayette eventually came to be known as George Washington’s closest attaché and unofficially his adopted son.
When George L. Crenshaw embarked on the journey to build Lafayette Square, he envisioned a development that would have a distinct European flair. Inasmuch as the neighborhood was designed as an elegant residential park on St. Charles Place. In 1989, the neighborhood was surrounded with wrought-iron gates in an effort to eliminate cut-through commuter traffic. The entrance at St. Charles Place is now the only way into the neighborhood.
