Back in 1866, Josiah Everett and his three brothers settled in the vicinity of what eventually became the community of Lyons. Shortly after, two other families homesteaded close by. Lyons is named after a settler by the name of Waldo Lyon who purchased a large piece of land upon which the town was built. In April of 1884, Lyons was incorporated.
Lyons is located in northwestern Burt County along Highway 77 between Fremont, Nebraska and Sioux City, Iowa.
