Wm. C. Lyon House. William C. Lyon, owner of Lyon Hardware and Building Co. at 213 East Chapel Hill St., had this house built and lived here until the early 1960s. Ralph Cooke, his partner, lived here until 1998.

Imposing 2 1/2 story blond brick Neoclassical Revival/Prairie style house with a hip roof with hip dormers, end chimneys, 9-over-1 paired sash. windows, and a French front door with transom and sidelights. A striking entrance porch has brick posts with arched bays set on stone piers, and a roof-top balcony. Terraces extend to either side.
