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