In celebration of Leawood’s 75th anniversary, the city is publishing a new history book later this year.

The roughly 100-page book — loosely titled “Leawood — The Journey Continues” — will chronicle the city’s history from 1997 to 2022 from a variety of perspectives, from economic development to arts and public outreach.
