Historic Lebanon is best known for its role in the Revolutionary War. It was the home of rebel governor Jonathan Trumbull and William Williams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Museums and other sites that tell the story of Connecticut's important contributions to the patriot cause surround Lebanon's mile-long town green, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located thirty miles east of Hartford, Lebanon was first settled in the 1690s and incorporated in 1700, and until 1804 included the present town of Columbia. While most residents now commute out of town to work, Lebanon remains primarily rural, striving to preserve its agricultural roots. This book tells the story of the people, places, and events that make Lebanon a town to celebrate.
