The dilapidated empty building at Peggy Lawton Kitchens is gone – torn down by order of the town, according to Town Administrator Michael Boynton. “It was an amicable resolution,” he said. “The property owner was responsive to the town’s request and took it upon themselves to remove the building” on June 18, he said. The company is still producing individually wrapped brownies and cookies in another building on the site, Boynton said. Peggy Lawton Kitchens was started in Dedham in 1949 and moved to an old movie theater in Walpole in 1961. That building burned down three years later, but the company rebuilt the facility on Washington Street in East Walpole.
