Lyle looked like Pioneer Days this past weekend. Thanks to everyone who was out and about for the 13+ mile of yard sales. We have heard from several vendors who said it was the best year they had ever had. Twin Bridges had a booth and it was very successful. The funds will be used for betterment of the museum.
The Twin Bridges Museum will be open the month of July on Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. Come and explore the history of your community.

The Song of the Rivers (a history of Lyle Elizabeth McDowell): III THE FIRST 'LYLE.' The house first built by James O. Lyle changed hands a number of times, and around the turn of the century was bought by a Lord Balfour of England who lived there for a number of years and had a retinue of servants, some of them Japanese house boys. One of the recent owners, Bill White, of this community, tore down the ancient structure. "
"Meanwhile, Klickitat County as a whole had also grown and the question of locating a county seat was raised. Several towns, including Lyle, were lively and vociferous candidates, and the contest narrowed down to Lyle and Goldendale. But at last, Goldendale emerged victorious, and has developed to its present status as the largest town in the county."
How can there be self-help groups?
