Lyon Park

Description:

Lyon Park was founded by politician, lawyer, and developer Frank Lyon in 1919. The 300 acre community was the largest real estate development in Virginia upon its opening. Lyon Park featured modest homes and highlighted the area's connections to Washington via the county's growing network of streetcar lines. The community continued to grow throughout the twentieth century, as the above home advertisement from the 1940s highlights.
