Lebanon History

The modern-day city of Lebanon was once a part of the Symmes Purchase. The first settler, Ichabod Corwin, arrived in this area in March 1796. He came to this place from Bourbon County, Kentucky, and set up his establishment on the north branch of Turtle Creek. Because of the large number of juniper or Eastern Red cedar trees growing in this area, the community adopted the name "Lebanon" after the biblical city of the same name. The foundation of the town was laid out in September 1802. Lebanon is also referred to as "The Cedar City."
