Leetown was founded in the 1840s, by John W. Lee, a farmer from Tennessee. Little is known about the village prior to the American Civil War. It is historically significant for its role as a field hospital for the U.S. Army during the Battle of Pea Ridge. Most, if not all, buildings and structures were used as field hospitals. There are no period buildings remaining, but period fences have been replaced and historic roads restored. An active reforestation program has been carried out.
