Lebanon is strategically located BETWEEN NATURE & CULTURE
Much of the progress in the early life of Lebanon County was due to the Union Canal and railroads. Use of the canal waned when the Lebanon Valley railroad was completed in 1857, marking another important stage in the progress of Lebanon county. Lebanon has always been a center of iron and steel manufacturing, reaching back to the Revolutionary War, when the busy Cornwall Furnace supplied much of the iron for the cannons and munitions used by Washington’s Army. The history of this town is evident in the architecture, remaining historical sites, and stories.
