Lyons Village Hall Phone Number: 708-442-4500
Lyons is a village in Lyons Township, Cook County, Illinois with a population estimated at 10,700. The village is 11 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. Lyons was incorporated in 1888 but 1673 dates the first activity in the area by French Explorer Louis Joliet and Jesuit missionary Father Pierre Marquette. The marshy region at what is now 47th and Harlem separates waters that flow into the Great Lakes from those that flow into the Mississippi River. During wet seasons Native Americans could travel from the South Branch of the Chicago River to the Des Plaines River through an area called Mud Lake. Since those days, Lyons has grown into the community it is today with rich history and many historical landmarks.
