History Brief:
This town began as a series of purchases called the four properties; the Five-Mile, the Fitch & Mason, the tract adjoining Five-Mile and the Whiting Purchase. The dissociated planters united and on 14 October 1697 the General Court recognized them as the Plantation of Lebanon. Lebanon was made a town in October 1700 though confusion over its boundaries was not resolved until May 1705. Town vital records begin 1700. Barbour collection records cover 1700-1854.
