History comes alive as Lyons commemorates 125th anniversary
LYONS – At a time when the village is commemorating its 125th anniversary, Lyons residents are working to preserve and showcase key parts of its history.
Visitors to Village Hall, 4200 Lawndale Ave., can view a 115-year-old painting of Mueller’s Brewery, which operated on Ogden Avenue in the mid-1800s. Measuring 15 feet wide and 7 feet tall, the painting was created by artist Joseph Antos in 1898.
“It looks fantastic, absolutely fantastic compared to other times I’ve seen it,” said Lyons Mayor Chris Getty, who added the village recently had the painting cleaned and encased in a prominent location. “When it was formerly displayed, it had no lighting. The setting didn’t do the painting justice. Now it’s in a setting where people are able to see it up close.”
