History & History Related Items

Lebanon history:

On 13 November 1801, the town of Lebanon was established. Land was chosen around a gushing spring where a settler, Neddy Jacobs, built his cabin. When Christopher Cooper, one of the commissioners, saw the spot in a red cedar grove, he said it was the place for the town. The name came from the cedars there, reminding them of the Cedars of Lebanon in the middle east. Lebanon was incorporated on 23 November 1819. The town quickly became a center of education, business and culture. Cumberland University opened in 1842. Much conflict occurred here and in nearby areas during the Civil War with many of the local residents joining the Confederate Army. Once the war was over, more expansion came with the arrival of the railroad and several large businesses. The current City administration building was once the Castle Heights Military Academy that opened here in 1902. After it closed in the 1980s, the city took over the historic building.
