History[edit]

Red Lion was originally called Westfield, and under the latter name was laid out in 1817.[1] The community most likely was named for a local inn which had an image of a red lion rampant painted on its sign.[1] A post office called Red Lion was established in 1834, and remained in operation until 1903.[2]
