Lyons Main Street was started as Lyons Better Hometown, Inc. by concerned citizens in 2000. Slowly but progressively buildings have been purchased, restored and small businesses have emerged. It is located in the Magnolia Midlands Regional Area of Georgia. The population is 4480. Due to being a smaller town with very small locally owned businesses, we are not eligible for many of the funding opportunities available. We have plans to revitalize an old building in town owned by the city. It will become the new Lyons Main Street Office, Welcome Center, and Altamaha Cultural Museum. We have a great group of volunteers and work well with the city on projects. This building will be the showpiece for our small town.
