The Lyons house is a significant example of the American Four Square form executed with Classical design elements. The house possess a hipped, pyramidal roof in the Four Square tradition, wide eaves, and well-crafted details like the fish scale patterning on the dormers. Designed by the architecture firm, Ballard Plannery, the Lyons house plan was one of several that a customer could select or combine in order to construct their "dream home." Arthur G. Lyons, an employment agent, had the home built by local contractor Wade H. Corbett in 1910 but by 1921 the house was occupied by restauranteur, John W. Walsh, and his wife, Helen.
