History & History Related Items

Kyle was established on July 24, 1880. It was named for Fergus Kyle, who, along with David E. Moore, gave 200 acres for a town to the International-Great Northern Railroad. The railroad first sold lots in October 1880. They were auctioned off under a large live oak tree. Today the tree is known as the Kyle Auction Oak. Kyle was incorporated in 1895, but in just two years, the townspeople voted to discontinue that status. In 1906, it was incorporated once again. Farming and ranching continue to be an important part of the economy in the Kyle area.
