Lyons United Methodist church, 2118 North 2nd Street; 1983.The church building, of brick with stone trim, is an example of Romanesque Style design. The front façade was the result of an 1893 reconstruction after a fire on October 23, 1892 destroyed the original church; the side walls appear to be partial retentions of the 1856 building. Recent alterations include; the removal of Romanesque arched window in the upper gable and the opening infilled with brick and glass block in the shape of a cross; and, lowering the bell tower and the bell placed in the yard.
