125th Year of Incorporation

Happy Anniversary, Lyons!

On April 19, 1880, E. S. Lyon founded the Town of Lyons, and on April 6, 1891, the Town became incorporated.

This April marks the Town's 125th year, or quasquicentennial of incorporation. To celebrate, Town Officials are hosting a commemorative event on April 4, beginning at 5:30 p.m., at Lyons Town Hall. The events will include opening live music, tours of the Lyons Depot, speeches from Mayor O’Brien and Mayor Pro Tem Sullivan, history and poem readings, presentations of commemorative gifts, and more. 
A Board of Trustees meeting will follow the event, beginning at its regular time, 7:00 p.m.

Please join us in celebrating Lyons' 125th year of incorporation on April 4, and be on the lookout for special quasquicentennial memorabilia!
