Historic Oxford Schoolhouse Hosts “Leawood Memories”

The docents of the Historic Oxford Schoolhouse and the Leawood Historic Commission will host a history presentation on Sunday, August 27th beginning at 2:00 pm in the historic one-room schoolhouse in Ironwoods Park, located at 147th & Mission Road, Leawood, Kansas 66224.

Join us to learn about the history of the area that is now called Leawood, from the days of early settlement through incorporation to the development of the beautiful city we know today.

Not only can attendees join in the discussion by sharing memories, they are encouraged to bring show and tell items and photographs from Leawood’s past.
Sharing photos is the perfect way to share a memory and spark the memories of others. We hope that participants will bring not only things from Leawood but also from the entire region.

Do you remember the days of the Leawood Country Club, the airport, or the Drive-in? Did you shop at Ranchmart when it first opened? Did you ride at Saddle and Sirloin or along the horse trails along Tomahawk Creek?

If anyone has a photograph of the caboose that sat in Leawood City Park in the early 70’s please bring it or contact April.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, share and reminisce about the “good old days”. For more information on this free event, contact April Bishop at the City of Leawood, 913-663-9157, or Email aprilb@leawood.org.
