Lyle Historical Society: The History of Lyle, Minnesota

The City of Lyle, Minnesota was platted in 1870 and incorporated in 1875. In 2020, Lyle celebrated the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of its founding. I wrote a history book entitled "Biggest Little Town on the Border: A History of Lyle, Minnesota 1853-2020". This site is the digital companion to this 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
