History of the Lyons schools

Campaign to save Lyons Middle/High School.
In 1948 a wave came across the US to close ALL SMALL TOWN high schools and consolidate. This is the story of how Lyons citizens fought for decades to save their High School… and not have their children bussed to Longmont.
Also, the history of the school property and Lyons Valley Park that used to be farm land owned by LaVern Johnson’s family.
