Composed of gently rolling prairie land 20 miles southeast of Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, is a progressive yet peaceful and family-oriented community dedicated to creating and maintaining a vibrant, livable city. Founded in 1865 as the Town of Strother, Lee’s Summit was the highest point on the railroad between Kansas City and St. Louis. Now Lee’s Summit is the sixth largest city in the state, with a population of more than 90,000.
Downtown Lee’s Summit offers apartments, condos and single family homes, with a wide variety of architectural styles. The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District has received the Missouri Distinction in Performance Award (for perfect scores on the Missouri performance indicators every year since its inception), one of the reasons BusinessWeek called Lee’s Summit one of the “Best Places in America to Raise Kids.”
