The Thomas Lyon House, which historians date to the 1690s, is believed to be the oldest unaltered structure in Greenwich. Its history dates to Thomas Lyon, one of the earliest settlers in Fairfield County. His son, Thomas, was the initial occupant of the house, which remained in the family’s possession for centuries. The property is currently owned and maintained by the town.
