Carlisle is known for an area landmark: a "double UFO" house off Chamberlain Road, which resembles two silver-colored flying saucers connected by a metal duct. This is actually two Futuro houses combined into one residence.


Carlisle had its start in about 1848 when the railroad was extended to that point. The village was named for "railroad man" George B. Carlisle, who in the mid-19th century "bought and platted a large section of the community". A post office was established at Carlisle in 1852, and remained in operation until 1961.
