About the Project
A History of Lebanon County tells a history of Lebanon County using objects found exclusively in the Historical Society. Recently, the New York Times wrote a story about the fifty items/objects that define the history of New York City. Tina Valgenti, of the Lebanon County Historical Society (LCHS), envisioned a similar project done for Lebanon County and we took a hold of the vision. After compiling objects and taking photographs (many thanks to Art Clagett for a job well done on the pictures), we have arranged the objects from the earliest in history to recent history. Both the photos and the captions tell the history of Lebanon County. We hope that this project has increased your interest in the history of the county and also the Lebanon County Historical Society. Stop in for a tour today!
