Gen. Buell House 1840-1841

June 22, 2013
The Marietta Times

By 1840 the Buell brick house, now on the newly formed Buell's Island, was in the hands of new owners, Truxton Lyon, John Buck and Christian Wolf. Lyon paid taxes on the brick house from 1841 to 1854, but he probably lived in Buell's Lowell. He was an enterprising man who, along with partners Buck and Wolf, built the Lowell locks in 1841. The trio also purchased "State lot 4 acres" from Perez B. Buell where the Lowell Mill was built in 1842. (Vol. 33, pp. 24-25) It stood as a landmark in Lowell until it burned in 1948.
