Excerpts from a pamphlet issued by The Lyle Commercial Club (date unknown but was after 1910). "Lyle has a Bank, Newspaper, Telephones, Rural Mail, two general Stores carrying large stocks, two Livery Stables, Drug Store, two Hotels, etc. and will soon have other new businesses blocks, graded streets, cement sidewalks, modern water works, new school and church."
"Lyle has splendid railroad service, is an important junction point and has daily steamer service on the Columbia River to Portland. The Lyle Commercial Club will be glad to furnish truthful information to intending home seekers and investors." (End of this article.)
