According to A Standard History of White County, Lee once possessed a post office, built in 1882, that served the rural districts northwest of Monon, Indiana. The first postmaster of this office was Calvin Anderson.
Lee was once known by the name Oakdale, which it was platted as in August 1886 by Benjamin A. Linville and Noble J. York. It is noted to exist within a "rich district of drained lands, admirably adapted to live stock" drained "by Pinkamink Creek, a branch of the Iroquois River".
Lee was an important stop on the Monon railroad. It was known for exporting hay and, later on, grain. It also contained a general store which reportedly received shipments on the railroad.
