Historic Districts Commission
The Central La Grange Historic Districts encompasses much of the historic portion of the City of La Grange and provides an excellent picture of what the community was like at the height of its development in the early years of the twentieth century. It includes residential, governmental, religious, and transportation-related resources. La Grange's historic character is derived from its role as a county seat and as a railroad community. The present appearance of the central district is still very much dominated by the courthouse square and the railroad which, with its track slicing down the center of Main Street and its long trains passing regularly through town, provide a strong visual presence.
