WCSX City of the Week

Congratulations to South Lyon,

You’re the WCSX City of the Week

South Lyon factoids:

  • South Lyon was called Thompson’s Corners when it was founded in 1832.
  • The city’s name was eventually changed to South Lyon after State Legislative Member, Lucius Lyon.
  • Railroad ties!  The Grand Trunk Railroad ran through South Lyon until the early 1980’s.  The branch line is now a paved bicycle trail through town and Reynold Sweet Parkway follows the original route.
  • Pumpkinfest is the largest annual festival in the South Lyon community, traditionally held during the last weekend of September.
