As the city of Leeds grows toward 12,000 residents, we say Happy Birthday to the City of Valor.
The Alabama Newscenter posted recognition of the Leeds’ 132nd birthday with some historical information on their website.
“The city of Leeds was incorporated April 27, 1887. The settlement was named for Yorkshire’s iron center in England. It got its post office in 1884, three years before being incorporated. In recent years, the city has benefited from the development of the Barber Motorsports Park and the Outlet Shops of Grand River mixed-use development.”
