Lebanon Historical Society
Established in 1965, the Lebanon Historical Society works to preserve and promote the town's rich history, particularly during the Colonial period and the Revolutionary War (the town was one of the largest and most important towns in the state in that era; Governor Johnathan Trumbull lived here). It operates a museum campus with historic and replica buildings, and houses a collection consisting of historical artifacts and other items dating from the late 1600s to the mid-1900s. The historic buildings include the Beaumont House, Pastor's House, Broom Shop, and the Smoke House. The two replica buildings are the Hearse House and the Privy & Woodshed. The Society also offers a number of events throughout the year including lectures, family-friendly events, and an annual antique show.
