Leonard is a great, family oriented town. The people are so nice and full of love. I have lived here all my life and it's a really great place to have a family and to live. The schools are the perfect sizes and the teacher and staff genuinely have the students' well-being at heart. The commute to bigger towns is fairly easy and you're close to several cities. Overall, Leonard is such a homey town and the community is full of compassion and warmth. I am so proud to call it my home.
As a resident here in Leonard, Texas, I believe that this small town is very peaceful, small populated and most people here are friendly. There's very few business and not a lot of entertainment here. It's nice coming home to the country after being out in the city all day long. There's no crime, everyone knows each other and get along very well.
