Search Fort Lyon Post Cemetery:

Fort Wise was established in 1860 and renamed Fort Lyon in 1861. During the summer of 1867, because of frequent flooding of the Arkansas River, unhealthful conditions, and the decreasing supply of timber, the Army relocated the fort 20 miles upstream and re-designated it as Fort Lyon No. 2. The U.S. Army used Fort Lyon until 1897, when they abandoned it after the end of the Indian Wars.
