Lyle History Mission

The City of Lyle, Minnesota was platted in 1870 and incorporated in 1875. In 2020, Lyle will be celebrating the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of its founding. I will be writing a history book to be released at the Lyle sesquicentennial. This site is the digital companion to this to-be-written book and is intended to:

  • serve as an online digital archive for Lyle images and other historical materials
  • provide a searchable database for historical Lyle people, businesses and news
  • generate leads for discovery of Lyle information held by visitors
  • solicit help from people interested in Lyle history
