North Leawood

Leawood, Kansas, is another great community in the Kansas City area. Leawood is dissected in half by the I-435 loop which circles the city. In the northern section (nearer to downtown KC), you’ll find the area that locals call “old Leawood” which is a beautiful residential community filled with rolling hills, larger lots, and distinct, sprawling ranch homes built primarily in the 1950s and 1960s.

Southern Leawood

The southern half of Leawood is more recently developed with large suburban homes, as well as a few patio and villa communities sprinkled in. This is an upscale community with modern conveniences. Town Center Plaza is the prime commercial shopping and dining district of Leawood. Here you’ll find a myriad of stylish chain stores as well as some local boutiques and high-end dining.

History

Leawood was named after a landowner from Oklahoma, Oscar E. Lee, who purchased a large section of land in 1922 on what was to become Leawood. Leawood, Kansas was incorporated in 1948. From the start, the residents of Leawood hoped and planned for a tightly knit community with the convenience of a big city and the peacefulness of a small town. Today, with picturesque parks and streets, highly rated schools and welcoming churches, Leawood is all that the founders had envisioned.
