Welcome to Our Page!
The Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce would like to welcome you to Park Hills, Missouri and Leadington, Missouri. We hope you will enjoy the friendly small-town atmosphere as much as we have.
The Park Hills and Leadington communities have both played roles in Southeast Missouri’s rich mining history. The “Lead Belt” was once one of the largest producers of lead in the world. With the depletion of this resource, the cities have met the challenges of transitioning from a mining-based economy to one much more diversified. Many small businesses are flourishing and more start-up businesses are opening each year.
We are very proud to have one of the finest community colleges in the state within our city limits. Both cities share an award-winning public school system, which is fully supported by a proud community.
If you enjoy the outdoors, you will love our parks. Our city parks are well-maintained and we are blessed with St. Joe State Park, one of the most visited state parks in the U.S., located right on our doorstep.
Whether just visiting or a new neighbor, you will find that Park Hills and Leadington are friendly, fun-filled communities. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Park Hills-Leadington Chamber of Commerce at (573) 431-1051. It is a distinct privilege to welcome you to our cities.

Tracy Fisher Named 2016's 2nd Quarter Acclaimed Ambassador!
Congratulations to Tracy Fisher of Bates Insurance for earning for the 2nd Quarter Acclaimed Ambassador Title! All of our Ambassadors worked extra hard throughout the 2nd quarter planning, preparing for, and executing our newly recognized Investor Appreciation Month. They all earned numerous points for their participation, but Tracy took the win by devoting even more of her personal time and energy helping with much of the behind the scenes prep throughout the month of June.
Chamber Ambassadors are recruited annually to help promote and assist the Chamber in the community and at Chamber events & meetings. Ambassadors earn points for attending events and meetings, recruiting & mentoring new investors, and providing the Chamber Board and Directors with assistance in other duties as needed.
Tracy was honored at the July Investor Meeting with Chamber recognition and a huge bag of goodies compliments of our Ambassador Sponsors!
We can't thank Tracy enough for her dedication and never ending enthusiasm for helping our Chamber. Her efforts help to make our job a little easier and our image even more stunning!
