Leona is a small town with some friendly folks, an old co-op, a small park, and some defunct businesses. There's not much more to see these days.

The town was named after the first child born here: Leona Schock, daughter of the president of the town's organizing company. Somewhat amusingly (though it was probably not humorous at the time), the town's schoolhouse was stolen sometime between the spring rains and the beginning of the fall term in 1867.
