South Lyon, Michigan (Images of America Series) by Jennifer Redfern

When settlers were moving west from Detroit into the unknowns of Michigan, they went six days to the northwest and came upon what would become Lyon Township. It is unknown who settled first in the southwest corner of the township, but when William Thompson, his mother, and his brothers acquired land, along with three corners of an Indian Trail, the area became known as Thompson’s Corners. Later, the area was renamed South Lyon for the town’s location in the township. Known for its rich farmland, it started to grow when the railroads came to town. This made South Lyon a booming town with a rich history—one that includes a “Witch’s Hat” depot and a buffalo. A series of 200 images tells the community’s story from its founding until the present day.
