Village of Pewamo Official Website:
Community in Lyons and Muir, Michigan
"The Township of Lyons, organized as Maple
Township, is located on the eastern tier of
townships in Ionia County; bounded on the north by
North Plains; east by Dallas, Clinton County; south
by Portland and west by Ionia. In 1837, when the
township was organized, it embraced four surveyed
townships and the first meeting was held in Lyons at
the home of William Hunt. Not until 1840 was the
name of the township changed from Maple to Lyons and
the village bearing that name is the township seat.
"Settlers were lured to this valley by the
rolling hills, lush with vegetation; the broad,
fertile prairies and the sparkling river that ran
with enough force to promise water power for mills
and with depth enough for navigation."
The communities of Muir, Lyons, and Pewamo are
all located in Lyons Township.
