The Lyons Business and Professional Association has not always been what it is today. This group or organization began back in the 1920s linking a few businessmen with one another. The group was small but it was the start to get the ball rolling up here on the North end. This organization was split from the businesses that were located in downtown Clinton.
The boundary line between the two towns was marked by what we know as "The Big Tree" which was said to be located on 2nd Street and 13th Ave North. The group has since grew and changed its name from The Lyons Business Club to the Lyons Retail Bureau.
As the 1990s brochure states:
"The big tree is now but a memory. The exact location and size of the tree are controversial facts today. But we know this landmark once divided the towns of Lyons and Clinton. We use the tree in our logo to celebrate the roots our forefathers put down and our continued growth within the city of Clinton."
Then in the 80s the organization changed its name once-again which we know today as the Lyons Business and Professional Association. The group currently has 49 members throughout the neighborhood. Take a look at the members tab to see all of our current members.
