School is back in session for many students in the area. Did you know that the first consolidated school district in Minnesota occurred in Lyon County? In 1905, the Lynd School District No. 1 and the Camden School District No. 14 became the first consolidated school district in Minnesota. The two single room schools were combined into a single two-room school in Lynd. The two-room frame school house was erected and ready for use by September on the site of the present Lynd school building. The new school was complete with all eight grades. In 1908, a second story was added, giving the school a total of four rooms. A fire destroyed the frame building on Dec. 11, 1922. A brick structure was built to replace it.
