Oscar G. Lee, a retired police officer from Oklahoma, set down the modern-day roots of Leawood. When Lee arrived in 1922, he brought with him a lifetime of dreams about his own future that he sought to make real on land he purchased between what are now 79th and 103rd Streets and State Line and Belinder Roads.
This purchase became the foundation of present-day Leawood. However, Leawood was shaped in great part in 1948, following the establishment of a Kroh Brother’s housing development.
