Government

An early pioneer, Abner Longley, in the early 1800’s set about building his log cabin at the site which was then notably swamp land, mosquitoes and cedars. It was later known as Lebanon, Indiana. A cabin, similar to his, is preserved and visited by hundreds in today’s beautiful Memorial Park setting on the city’s north side. This was the home of another early settler, Abigail Herr, was given to the city. By an, act of the Indiana Legislature in 1832, which called for the county seat to be geographically located in the center, Lebanon became the county seat.

Lebanon was a city of promise for its founders and early builders - the promise for its founders and early builders - the promise of new homes and businesses, bustling factories and mills, churches, schools, and prosperity for all.
