Westboro Depot update

Lebanon Historical Society would like to thank everyone who contributed to our effort to obtain the old Westboro Depot and save it from demolition.
The current owner has now received approval to move the depot to a new location, partly as a result of the Society’s efforts and the interest of the community.  As a result, the Society will not acquire the building but we are pleased that it will be preserved.
While we’re disappointed that we won’t have the opportunity to use the building, we’re very grateful for all the support we’ve received.

Our publications make great gifts!

Are you looking for a gift for someone who has an interest in Lebanon history?  Visit our Publications page for a list of titles that are available for sale.
Also available are poster reprints of Larry Howard’s painting of the fountain in front of the Marion Carter house.


Publications (but not the poster) are available for sale at the Lebanon Public Libraries.
