Created on September 26, 1783, from part of Westmoreland County and named in honor of the Marquis de la Fayette. In 1825 Lafayette visited the county as Albert Gallatin’s guest and addressed the public in Brownsville. Uniontown, the county seat, was laid out about 1776 as Beason’s-town and later renamed in allusion to the Federal Union. It was incorporated as a borough on April 4, 1796 and as a city on December 19, 1913.

Wendell Brown and Christopher Gist settled in the area around 1752. Washington’s Fort Necessity campaign occurred in 1754, and Braddock’s army passed through the next year. Indian raids continued until 1783. Brownsville developed from a military post, Fort Burd. From 1818 to 1852 the National or Cumberland Road brought prosperity, ending when the Pennsylvania Railroad connected with Pittsburgh and bypassed Fayette. The first iron furnace was fired in 1789. Brownsville was an early boat building center, and the glass industry originally flourished in the county. The coke industry began with the first beehive oven in 1841. Connellsville coking coal had superior chemical qualities. Henry Clay Frick’s fortune began with coke in 1870. By the 1920s, beehive ovens were obsolete and much of the coke manufacturing moved to the sites of the steel mills, but beehives were revived in World War II. By 1950 the coal under the county was gone, and severe unemployment and depression began. Farms cover 23 percent of the county’s land today. Bituminous coal, mined entirely by surface operations, is still produced.
