Lyon County, located in the southwestern region of the great state of Minnesota, was established on March 6, 1868, and named in honor of General Nathaniel Lyon, who fought in the American Civil War. The county is steeped in rich history, which dates back to the early Sioux (Dakota) tribes that initially inhabited the area. European-American settlers gradually moved into the county in the mid-1800s, primarily attracted by fertile land suitable for agriculture.

The county seat is Marshall, which was founded in 1872 by New Yorker William Richard Bigham. As the city gradually grew, it became a regional hub for trade and transportation with the development of railroad infrastructure.

Throughout its history, Lyon County has been an agricultural powerhouse, with farming being the mainstay of its economy. The county's productive land yields a variety of crops including corn, soybeans, and sugar beets. Additionally, livestock farming, particularly of cattle and hogs, also plays a significant role in the local economy.

One interesting fact about Lyon County is that it is home to Southwest Minnesota State University, a public university established in 1967. The institution is well known for offering a variety of educational programs in diverse disciplines, emphasizing both the liberal arts and professional studies.

In sum, Lyon County is a historically rich and agriculturally productive region in the state of Minnesota. The county's growth and development over the years are primarily rooted in the fertile land that has shaped both its economy and way of life.
