Lyle Historical Society: The History of Lyle, Minnesota

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
