Carlyle

Carlyle is a city of approximately 3,406 residents and is 33 miles east of Scott, located at the junction of State Route 127 and U.S. Route 50. Carlyle was settled in 1812 and laid out as a village in 1837. Overall, Carlyle offers its residents an interesting dichotomy of lifestyle. During the work week, residents live, work and run their errands in a community in a rural setting. By night or on the weekend, Carlyle residents have easy access to the metropolitan lifestyle of St. Louis city and Metro East Ill. One may say that Carlyle residents experience a little of everything, the best of what’s around! Visit Carlyle on the Internet at http://www.playandstaycarlyle.com. Carlyle is most widely known for its close proximity to the largest, man-made lake in Illinois, Carlyle Lake. Construction of the Lake and the dam was completed in 1967 after having been authorized by U.S. Congress in 1958. Carlyle Lake, in addition to Lake Shelbyville, was constructed primarily for flood control under the stewardship of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Today, Carlyle Lake is very popular among fishermen, hunters, campers, sailors and people who enjoy outdoor recreation. Carlyle Lake receives approximately 3 million visits in any given year. More information on Carlyle Lake may be found on the Internet at http://www.mvs.carlylelake.com. The City of Carlyle proper is a full-service community, providing for a variety and concentration of services not found in many municipalities the size of Carlyle, including grocery stores, restaurants, health care providers, general retail, hardware and auto and professional advisors. Carlyle is also home to one of Downstate Illinois’ finest golf courses, Governor’s Run. School services are overseen by Carlyle Community Unit District No. 1. Education is provided to over 1,300 students in three separate buildings for elementary, junior high and high school students. Class sizes are still small in Carlyle schools, and students learn in comfortable settings with a newly constructed junior high and a recently expanded elementary school building.
