Lee's Summit History Museum

A repurposed 1939 WPA Post Office houses exhibits and artifacts telling the story of Lee's Summit. Originally called "Big Cedar," the Civil War had a lasting effect on this area. Before the war William B. Howard, the founder, negotiated with the Pacific Railroad to establish a right-of-way. In 1868 citizen's voted to incorporate as the Town of Lee's Summit. Permanent exhibits illustrate the impact of the Border/Civil War and agriculture on our development and growth. You can learn more about our most notorious resident, Cole Younger; see a Pat Metheny Grammy, learn about Loula Long Combs and the Longview Farm and enjoy the recreated "Vogue Theater."  Welcome to the Historical Society of Lee's Summit where history can be found through stories, maps, photographs and artifacts.
