The site has had a long history of providing sand and gravel for road construction. In the 1880s, gravel was removed to build the Canadian National Brockville - Westport Railroad.

Gravel from Lyn Pit later supplied fill for the improvement of Highway #2. In 1959, Elizabethtown Township acquired the pit from Canadian National Railways in a straight land exchange. When the MacDonald-Cartier Freeway (Highway 401) was built in the early 1960s, Lyn Pit again provided road building material.
