“Lebanon had a traditional New England layout. A two-acre square occupied the center of town. Within it stood a bandshell and a great many towering elms. Around the square stood various civic buildings of agreeable scale – the library, the town hall, the opera house – whose dignified facades lent Lebanon an aura of stability and consequence. … I was charmed and amazed to discover that life could be physically arranged the way it was in Lebanon, New Hampshire.”
