About This Place
Pie Town is an unincorporated town on U.S. Route 60 in Catron County, New Mexico, United States. Its name comes from a dried-apple pie business that was established by Clyde Norman in the early 1920s. Pie Town hosts a Pie Festival on the second Saturday of each September.
The town and its people were extensively photographed by Russell Lee, a photographer for the Farm Security Administration, in 1940. Pie Town, Lee's photos, and local restaurant "The Daily Pie Cafe", were the subject of an article in the Smithsonian Magazine in February 2005.
The town is also home to one of the ten antennas which make up the Very Long Baseline Array.
