Marguerite Peoples purchased the Lyons Café in 1962.Her little enterprise, originally comprised of six seats and two-and-a-half booths, flourished due to her hard work, steadfastness and innovation. Known as “the pie place,” the café treated all comers to homemade pie that she baked herself daily. Personal and professional life blended together in a successful career that continues to this day. Along the way, town government, chamber of commerce and community groups benefited from her wisdom and energy.
