Proud Heritage
The original railway line through Lyalta opened for traffic on February 12, 1914. Express and passenger service on the C.N.R. was discontinued in the spring of 1964, and the station house was demolished. In 1979, Lyalta contained two Alberta Wheat Pool elevators, a store with a post office, a community hall, and four homes.

Golden Future
Today the residents of Lyalta and the surrounding community take great pride in their Community Centre consisting of a hall with seating for 200, two baseball diamonds, new playground, and camping grounds. Also, Lyalta still retains its post office and one grain elevator in the hamlet. Currently, The Lakes of Muirfield, a gated, master-planned community of 700 homes that includes lots with golf course or water feature views is being developed in Lyalta.
