Welcome To LyonsMuir.org!

DID YOU KNOW?
When the Lyons-Muir Historical Museum was dedicated on June 19, 1987, the keynote speaker was William Weisgerber of rural Ionia, whose grandfather operated a furniture manufacturing shop and a funeral parlor in Lyons near the turn of the century. “I can recall going to the movies on Saturday night, right over there,” he said, pointing to the area where the free movies were held in the summers of the 1930s and 1940s. “I feel such gratitude to the people of Lyons-Muir for preserving the heritage you have here.”

Aloha from one of the founders of the Lyons Muir Historical Society. I'm so excited to see that someone took the initiative to create a web-site. I have lots of info I'd love to submit that would be of interest to the Lyons Muir H.S. members. So, from sunny Maui, wishing you a warm day. Suzanne 'Sue' Bell

Was the land for the Lyons Township cemetery donated to the city. It seems very hilly a lot of ups and downs. I have quite a few family members buried in this cemetery.

We are looking for any information or pictures for the home located at 306 N. Higbee in Lyons. We are in the process of renovating and have found alot of interesting things in the walls, dirt and floors. If you have any, please send in our way, jdugan24@hotmail.com

Some of the artifacts we found buried deep under the house will eventually make it to the museum.

Thanks
Jennifer

I am a descendant of Ambrose and Benjamin Soule. We had a nice visit in the summer of 2006. I have much information on them if anyone is interested.
