  • This is a hidden treasure of history and displayed antiques that bring the life of how Lee's Summit came to be. Allow time to read the personal stories and then even sit in a sectional of the original "Vogue Theater" while watching some collections of filmed footage of years gone by. If the front stairs are keeping you from going to visit, try the back walkway and door for easier entrance. There is also a country store (small room), that you can purchase some of the stories that are put to print. Photographing exhibits are mostly not allowed. Make sure to sign the guest book before you leave. Entrance fee is by donation.
  • A great small museum showcasing local history.
