The coordinating committee of Lebanon’s Soldiers Memorial has invited the Historical Society to present its March 21 program, “Buried Secrets of the Revolutionary War,” at its first-floor museum next to Colburn Park in downtown Lebanon.
Seldom open to the public, the Soldiers Memorial was built from 1886-1890 by Civil War veterans as a memorial to their comrades and as a free public library. After the library moved to another building in 1909, the first floor was converted into a war museum.
The Soldiers Memorial is located around the corner from the Marian Carter Home, where Historical Society meetings are usually held. Signs will direct visitors from the original location to the Soldier’s Memorial on the night of the program.
The Lebanon Historical Society preserves and promotes the heritage of Lebanon, New Hampshire – its prominent citizens, special places, and memorable events – as well as historical scholarship. The Society’s Web site is located at:www.lebanonnh.org.
