Italianate Home For Sale
This gorgeous c.1840 Italianate home for sale in Lyons, New York (pop. 3,619) was built 15 years after the completion of the Erie Canal through the hamlet.
I could not find the original owners of this spectacular house, but a subsequent owner had ties to the canal. Eighty years after the home’s build date, W.H. Munn, a farmer, owned it. He resided here with his wife, Katie, and son, Alvah Dwight, chief operator at the Barge Canal Lock #27 in Lyons. After W.H. passed away in 1944, the house was passed down to his son. Per the 1940 US Census, the property was valued at $5,000 that year.
- 0.26acre lot
