Lilyglen Post Office

The post office was at the Charles and William Lindsay Ranch on old Dead Indian [Memorial] Road 20 miles northeast of Ashland in the eastern part of township 38 south, Range 3 east. The post office's name was suggested by theh Lindsay's brothers' mother in recognition of the wild mountain lilies growing in the surrounding meadows. The first and only postmaster was William Lindsay. As the population declined and travel to Ashland improved the post office was no longer needed. Still known as Lilyglen, the area now lies within the boundaries of Howard Prairie Lake County Park.
