Additional Details:
Lyon County, the 102nd county in Kentucky to be established, was carved out of the southeastern section of Caldwell County and named in honor of Crittenden Lyon. In 1854 an election was called, Caldwell County divided, and the land became Lyon County on March 6, 1854, with Eddyville being chosen as the county seat. This courthouse was built in 1962 at an initial cost of $140,000.00.
