Leafdale – a poetic name derived from the grove of oaks surrounding the Methodist Church, the store and post office – was first named Gibson. Because of some confusion of mail with other communities of the name, it was thought best to change its name. The name was changed in the early 1900’s by the late Mr. Wallace Kane and Mrs. Kane, now past ninety, but still able to go back to the church and the store occasionally.
