Facts for Renters
Lebanon was first settled right after the Revolutionary War. Some of the first cabins in the town popped up around the 1790s. A little more than a decade later, the main streets of the city were being laid out.
By 1805, the city had its first courthouse and jail. A few years later, the local newspaper The Western Star was created by John McLean.
To this day, the area is still known for the effects that the Shakers had. Their community was called Union Village in Lebanon and still has some interest to visitors because of the Shaker culture and their buildings.
In 1855, the city created the Southwestern Normal School, which was lauded nationwide for its innovative teaching tactics that were copied throughout the U.S. By 1917, the school had developed into a university that had approximately 80,000 graduates.
The city still has many businesses that reference its historical roots, such as the Jam and Jelly Lady and the LM&M Railroad, which allows families to take an hour train ride around the city.
