Proud of East Texas: Leesburg General Store & Cafe

By Joan Hallmark

The population of Leesburg keeps getting smaller an smaller and yet, the town has a spirit that refuses to die. The Leesburg Community has been around for over a hundred years, but as times changed, people moved away.

In spite of this, the Leesburg General Store and Cafe has existed since 1935.

Melinda Tossey is the fourth owner of the store and cafe combination. She says it's because of the community that the business still exists. It's the place in town to pick up a loaf of bread and bottle of milk, eat one of the best hamburgers around, and most of all, visit with your neighbors. Leesburg General Store and Cafe is located on State Highway 11 in Camp County.
