History:  

The city of Lynd began with the development of three communities, all called Lynd: (1) Upper Lynd in section 33 was named for trading post owner James W. Lynd and was the county seat when the county was established in 1870; (2) Lower Lynd was laid out in June 1870 in section 27 with a hotel, a store, and a church; businesses transferred from Upper Lynd to Lower Lynd by common consent and the county seat moved to Lower Lynd in 1872; when the Winona and St. Peter Railroad built north of Lynd in 1872 and the town of Marshall developed, the county seat was moved to Marshall in January 1874; this site became Old Lynd; (3) the (New) Lynd site was platted in November 1888 at the siding established by the Great Northern Railway in section 27, creating the present community, which incorporated as a village January 4, 1954; the post office was established in 1872.
