The first inhabitants of areas around Lafayette Hill were members of the Lenni Lenape tribe, a peaceful tribe of Native American Indians. Tribe members lived in peace with the township's first European settlers who were Welsh Quakers and English. The European newcomers endeavored to learn the tribe’s language and customs. Settlement of the area began in 1683. Several buildings still stand that played a role during the American Revolution. George Washington stayed in the area before moving his troops on to Valley Forge. Today, Lafayette Hill is an affluent community featuring plenty of green space in the way of parks and nature preserves. Students in Lafayette Hill attend schools in the colonial School District.
