Welcome to the Lenexa Historical Society. We are a member based 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 1974. Our mission: We encourage community involvement and are dedicated to the appreciation, preservation, and promotion of Lenexa’s Historical Heritage. How we do this: We host educational meetings, participate in community events and festivals, and bring local history to Lenexa's schools through the City's "Learning About Lenexa" program. We also partner with the City regarding Lenexa's history museum: The Legler Barn Museum and Lenexa Frisco Train Depot, which displays local area history and artifacts, engaging exhibits, and includes a local historical research library.
