Lyndon was established March 14, 1870, when four townsite owners contributed 40 acres each to the establishment of a town. Two of the contributors, Haas and Gilliland have descendants who still live in the community.


Earlier in 1842, the US government signed a treaty with the Sac & Fox of Mississippi residing in Iowa. The tribe agreed to give up their Iowa land for land in Kansas, part of it being the site where Lyndon now stands, almost in the center of the reservation. After Kansas became a state the Sac & Fox were soon removed to Oklahoma, and the land was immediately put up for sale by the government.
