Lyon Hall remained in the Lyon family from 1850 until 1997 when it was donated to the Marengo County Historical Society. Preserved best describes this historic house museum. Its many original Empire furnishings, glassware, china, quilts, volumes of books, and family portraits by Wilhelm Frye are set against the smooth-as-marble plaster walls and beautiful Greek Revival wood casings. Keep an eye out for the original faux graining of the interior doors. So well done you won't believe it's painted. Lyon Hall wears the patina of time. In addition to the architecture, art, and furnishings, Lyon Hall boasts original family documents, the family Bible, and numerous stories of the Lyon family.
