Thomas Lyon House built c.1690-95 The Thomas Lyon House, at 1 Byram Road, is considered to be the oldest unaltered structure in Greenwich, Connecticut. The house, a saltbox, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is in the process of being restored by the local historic commission. Its heritage dates back to the family of Thomas Lyon (1621-1690), one of the earliest settlers of Fairfield County, and particularly his son, Thomas Lyon (1673-1739) who, with his wife Abigail and their children, were the initial occupants. The house stayed in the family line of Abigail and Thomas Lyon in to the 20th Century.
