Lyle history from "The Lyle Pioneer, Special Edition 1978 -- Town of Lyle started as mail station in year 1859."
"SP & S Railroad construction was started in 1905 and 1910 CR & N Railroad became part of SP & S. The old town site of Lyle, which lay south of the newly constructed railroad, was purchased by SP & S and in 1909 the present town site was plotted. Steamboats ceased to operate on the Columbia River after the completion of the North Bank line."
Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2nd, but the last signature wasn't added until five years later.
