History on a Pinhead

Leon Valley developed after WWII and incorporated as a town in the 1950s. It reported only 536 residents for the 1960 Census which has since grown to the present 9,239 (2000). The city, which at first glance appears to have more businesses than homes, deserves recognition for the care given to their (several) water towers.

Subject: Leon Valley in the 1950s
"I attended Leon Valley Elementary School in the early 1950's and remember when the village was composed of only a few stores, a school and a blinking traffic light. The original school was a three or four room wooden structure with open hallways running through the building. Other buildings had been added by the time I was enrolled. There was a large arbor with a roof of dried palm branches in the center of the campus that was a favorite place for students to hang out. The nearby stores had stone facades. The only business I clearly remember was on the corner across from the school and operated as a variety store." - William Thomas Deneke, Decatur, Georgia, March 04, 2007
