Most notable is the Leonard Mill, a towering structure of patchwork walls that was built in 1889 as a grain elevator. The building is now in need of repair, and fundraising efforts are underway way to restore it.  The building abuts The Polly Ann Trail and is a fascinating destination for history buffs and a great background for photographers. 


History and recreation are the main draws of this tiny northern Oakland County Town.  With a population of around 400, centered by historic buildings dating back to the 1880s, Leonard is a welcoming escape from modern city life.

Louie's Food & Spirit

Cody Colella:
I live about 40 min away but got rained out at a nearby golf course and my buddy and I stopped in at the recommendation of a guy at the golf course. Neat little place, good food and super reasonable prices. Our bartender was awesome. Definitely worth a stop in.
