This early 1800's town was named after the Biblical Lebanon because of the many juniper or Eastern Red cedar trees there, similar to the Lebanon Cedar. It is known today as "The Cedar City". The town boasts around 80 speciality shops - from antiques and collectables, to the chocolate factory where we visited today. The Golden Lamb Inn that is located in Lebanon on the corner of S Broadway and Main Street, is recognized as the Ohio's oldest inn being established in 1803. This inn has been visited by 12 presidents. Lebanon is also the home of the Turtle Creek Valley Railway.
