Welcome to Lenox!
Founded in 1871, Lenox as a rich history and an outstanding future outlook. Originally the town was called Summit, but the name was eventually changed and named after the daughter of the railroad vice president.
After enduring a major fire in 1884 that destroyed all but five businesses, Lenox rebounded has continued to grow ever since. We are proud of our:
- A- rated school district
- Modern library
- The Lenox Time Table Newspaper
- Main Street shopping
- Golf course
- City pool
- Walking trail
- Sports complex
- City park
- Rodeo Grounds
Today, Lenox is leading the way in Southwest Iowa in the renewable wind generation market with the construction of a wind turbine. The Lenox wind turbine is owned and operated by Lenox Municipal Utilities. This renewable energy unit produces about 11% of our community’s energy. The turbine was installed in a three-month time period, generating energy for the first time on November 22, 2003.
Visit Lenox and experience the Bright Lights and Shining Hospitality of the past and present.
