The Old Lee’s Summit Historic Neighborhoods surround the vibrant historic downtown. Despite Lee’s Summit’s rapid growth spurt over the past twenty-five years, historic Old Lee’s Summit and its downtown central business district have remained the heart of the community. With small town charm in a growing city, Old Lee’s Summit is a great place to live, work, shop and play. A Homecoming parade may pass by your front door or the sound of live music may drift through your open windows.
A variety of architectural styles appeal to diverse tastes, including 1880′s farmhouses, early 1900′s Queen Anne’s, Colonial Revivals, 1920′s Craftsmen Bungalows, Gordon Van Tine homes, mid-century ranches and post-WWII cottages.
