Welcome to Medicine Lodge
Officer James "Tiny" Leonard
The City of Medicine Lodge said goodbye to our friend and Officer James “Tiny” Leonard on Thursday, October 18. Tiny had been fighting pancreatic cancer for the past year. Tiny was an outstanding officer and an all around great person. He will be dearly missed. Memorials may be made to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, in care of Larrison Funeral Home, 120 E. Lincoln, Medicine Lodge, KS 67104.
Medicine Lodge is the most populous city in and the county seat of Barber County, KS. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 2,009. Beautiful Gypsum Hills scenery, rich history, winding rivers, plentiful wildlife and eclectic shops and restaurants are all a part of the charm our town has to offer.
