About Us

The Lyons Main Street Program…

Lyons Main Street Program began in 2008 after a long, hard-fought battle by many individuals in Lyons to become 1 of 3 communities in the Western Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor to be awarded a National Trust Main street Designation.     Lyons main Street Program is an independent entity completely funded by donations from businesses, organizations and individuals who want to invest in Lyons, NY.  Lyons Main street Program is based on the National Trust Main Street Four Point Approach.


Organization – Building grassroot support and partnership between public, private and commercial entitles

Promotion—Creating a positive image that will rekindle community pride

Economic Restructuring—Strengthening the communities’ assets and desire to invest in the community

Preservation—maintaining historic integrity and architecture though preservation and education


Lyons Main Street Program offers a strong business support group for the Town of Lyons businesses.  As a small community our organization, with very similar missions, can provide a strong business atmosphere. We offer support to start-up businesses, events, programs and an active growing farmer’s market. We support the other community organizations and activities that make Lyons a growing and healthy place to live and work.
