Originally called Turkey Creek, the Leicester community was founded in 1829 with the establishment of a local post office. Frontiersman Leicester Chapman, an early Postmaster of that office, renamed the area for his own namesake, the Earl of Leicester. Today, the bucolic community is filled with local farms, artisans, and nature lovers who enjoy the quiet mountain views.
