Lebanon History

The area now known as Lebanon was originally referred to as Poquechaneed by Mohegan Indians. Some settlers from Norwich arrived in this region and purchased land from Mohegan sachem Uncas. The first land grant was made to the Deputy Governor of Connecticut, Maj. John Mason, in 1663. The town of Lebanon was officially incorporated on October 10, 1700. Initially, the economy of the town rested largely on agriculture. However, today, the focus has been divided between the agricultural and service sectors.
