History:

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.
