Based on a recent survey, the town of Dyer is one of the best places to raise a family. As a result, the town has grown dramatically in the last 50 years. The area is mostly flat, except for the steep sand ridge south of US Highway 30 which is called the Glenwood Shoreline. Due to the ease of development, Dyer has grown into one of the best communities in the country.
The earliest historical records date back to 1838, and On June 1, 1855 the original plat of the town was chartered. A settler from Pennsylvania named Aaron Norton Hart played an integral role in developing Dyer’s infrastructure. He died in 1883 while working on a ditch near Plum Creek. As a result of his dedication to the town, Hart Street is named in his honor. Most noteworthy today is the beautiful Meyer’s Castle which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Dyer is home to Castle Hill Funeral Home, Fagen-miller Funeral Home and Smits Funeral Home. St Margaret Mercy Hospital also calls Dyer home. Dyer has some of the best health care facilities in the region including Regency Place Health Care, Symphony of Dyer and Dyer Nursing & Rehabilitation.

The original plat for the city of Dyer was dedicated on June 1, 1855 and since then the town has continued to grow.
