History & History Related Items

Lebanon history:

Lebanon was first known as Peterson's Gap after Asa Peterson, one of the early settlers. The first store here opened here in 1847 by Jeremiah Ralston and his wife. He began to lay out the town and called it after his home town of Lebanon, Tennessee. The cedar trees along the river also reminded him of the cedars of Lebanon in the Bible. Not everyone agreed with the name, though and some called it Pinhook for a time. But when the post office opened in 1851, the name was firmed up as Lebanon. Lebanon was incorporated in 1878. Electricity came to town in 1889 and the telephone arrived in 1890.

Here is a history page for Lebanon.
