Lyon Estates in 1985.

Lyon Estates was a subdivision developed around 1955 located two miles from downtown Hill Valley. Marty McFly lived here in 1985 before moving to Hilldale. It was on the same side of town as the Twin Pines Mall, formerly Twin Pines Ranch, connected presumably by a highway and a mile apart.[1]

Notable Events


Lyon Estates in 1955.

In 1955 Lyon Estates was in the very early stages of construction, with only the lion statues in place and groundbreaking scheduled for the coming Winter. The future housing development was advertised on a billboard promising the opportunity to "Live In the Home of Tomorrow... Today!" The billboard portrayed a house resembling the house the McFlys would live in 30 years later.

In the early morning of November 5, Marty hid the DeLorean Time Machine behind the billboard. Marty and Doc retrieved it that evening.

Marty sees the billboard advertising his future home.

One week later, in the early morning of November 12, Doc and Marty hid the Time Machine behind the same sign for most of the day. That night Doc flew the Time Machine away to rescue Marty, getting a string of flags from the billboard caught on the car. Doc was able to rescue Marty from the exit of the River Road Tunnel by dropping the string of flags.

Doc and Marty then returned to the Lyon Estates site in order to burn Grays Sports Almanac. After they succeeded the DeLorean was struck by lightning which sent Doc back to 1885, a fact Marty learned when the Western Union man arrived minutes later.


Marty returns home from the Old West.

The McFly residence was located at 9303 on a road in Lyon Estates. Behind the houses stood electrical towers.

In the very early morning of October 26, Doc dropped Marty off home and left for his first trip into the future. Later that morning, he returned there from the future, picked up Marty and Jennifer Parker, and left for 2015.

After returning to October 27, Marty ran back to Lyon Estates to get his truck and drive to Jennifer's house. Still wearing his 1885 clothes, he briefly encountered Biff and his family.


In an alternate reality, instead of the McFlys an African-American family lived in House 9303. A realty company was in the process of attempting to terrorize the residents into selling their homes and leaving the area.

There was lots of graffiti on the lion statues outside the area.


In a possibly apocryphal account of 2015 Lyon Estates had been converted to a public park, with the lion statues' inscriptions changed to "Lyon Estates Park Land."

Behind the scenes

The entrance to the neighborhood has statues of lions on either side. Writer Bob Gale added this feature based upon a set of statues that mark the entrance to his hometown of University City, Missouri [1].
