LYONS, GEORGIA

 

POPULATION: 4,000+

"The city of Lyons originated when a railroad, the SAM (Savannah, Americus, Montgomery) later known as the Seaboard, reached the area in 1891, and a station was established by H.C. Bragley. Land around the station was acquired by the Americus Investment Company and a town map was created laying out businesses and residential lots. The name Lyons was given to the proposed town by Colonel Sam Hugh Hawkins of Americus, president of the railroad company. Hawkins had recently returned to the United States from a European business trip and suggested a number of European names for towns to be established along the new line. Lyons was named for Lyons, France."
