Lyons History

Today, Lyons is sometimes referred to as the “Double Gateway to the Rockies,” and is known for its unique art, major folk and bluegrass music festivals, and mountain recreation.

Old Stone Church

Built in 1894 for $3,147 using sandstone quarried from the nearby canyon walls, this was one of the first of Lyons’ landmark buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Redstone Museum

The Lyons Redstone Museum (the town’s old schoolhouse built in 1881) is a great place for folks to visit. It features Lyons history in displays, photographs, and genealogy. There is also a gift and book shop.
