15207 Adams Street

About the Chamber:
Located in the heart of South Texas, Lytle is a small community offering many amentities and a comfortable lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of San Antonio. Only 20 minutes from "the big city", Lytle offers quality shopping, dining and recreational activities.


The town of Lytle Texas was named for John T. Lytle, a rancher and traildriver active in the area in the 1860s. He helped to establish Lytle Station on the International-Great Northern Railroad in 1882, making this the only town in the county having a railway station at the time. When a post office was granted in 1883, it was named for the train stop, which was near the Lytle-McDaniel Ranch and had a general store, a bar, and a casketmaker named W. J. Garnand, who became the first postmaster. Lytle was a shipping point and retail center for area ranchers and corn and cotton farmers.
