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.

This year's theme is "A Disney Christmas". Parade participants are encouraged to decorate their entries to reflect their favorite Disney Movie.

Spectators will also enjoy games, goodies, and more at the Farmer's Market beginning at 6:30 p.m., and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus immediately following the parade.

Central's New Office Complex & Library Media Center are Open for Business!
Members of the Central RIII School Board, Administration, and Staff were joined by Investors from the Park Hills - Leadington Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the opening of the New Office Complex and Library Media Center at Central Elementary with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, November 13.
The construction and renovation project was made possible from bond proceeds that were sold by the school district. Voters overwhelmingly approved the bonds in April.
The district will also be hosting an open house from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. this evening so that all district patrons can tour the new facilities.
The improvements and additions to the facility are beautiful! Congratulations to Central RIII and thank you to those who helped make this much needed project possible!
