John W. Lee's home in Leetown prior to the Battle of Pea Ridge

The site of Leetown was a thriving community before the Battle of Pea Ridge. Leetown’s buildings were used as hospitals for the wounded on both sides. After the battle, the buildings were in such disrepair that only a handful of people returned to Leetown.
