The T.U. Lyon House is a historic house at 9 Warren Street in Stoneham, Massachusetts. The modest 1.5 story Greek Revival house was built c. 1850 for T.U. Lyon, a shoe cutter. At the time of its construction Warren Street had been supplanted as the major north-south road through Stoneham by the Medford-Andover Turnpike (now Main Street, Massachusetts Route 28). Most of its distinctive Greek Revival features, including corner pilasters and a larger-than-typical frieze,[2] have been lost due to recent residing of the exterior (see photo).

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
