Lynd is a city in Lyon County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 448 at the 2010 census. Lynd is a small but growing community in southwestern Minnesota. The development of a new golf course and an additional housing development have started a growth trend that may eventually double the size of the community. It is primarily a bedroom community for individuals who work in the nearby city of Marshall. Despite being much smaller in size, it historically played a more significant role in the area. The Kiel and Morgan Hotel in the town was the original Lyon County seat.
