Marine Corps Base Quantico --
Tucked within 65,000-acres of Marine Corps Base Quantico sits Lyman Park, a residential community of Lincoln Military Housing, with a long, rich history, which includes how it got its name.
Retired Marine Col. Charles H. Lyman IV, joined by his wife Betsy Lyman, recently visited Lincoln Military Housing to dedicate a plaque in honor of his late grandfather, Maj. Gen. Charles H. Lyman II, for which Lyman Park neighborhood was named. Lyman IV’s intention in giving the plaque to the housing community was to commemorate his grandfather’s career in the Marine Corps and let people know how Lyman Park got its name. Lyman IV said the idea has been years in the making and he presented the plaque at this time in honor of what would have been his father’s 100th birthday and 100 years of service in the Marine Corps by the Lyman family.
