Side A: The Town Square
Only Broadway and Main were named on the original 1802 map of Lebanon. Broadway was 1 1/2 times wider so stagecoaches could turn around. The four lots at the intersection were set aside as the town square. Today two of the lots are parks and the other two are Lebanon's city hall and public library.


Side B: City Hall Site
The city building is Colonial Revival in style and was modeled after the chapel at Dennison [sic] University. It was dedicated in May of 1934. Two years earlier, the Opera House, built here in 1878, burned down on Christmas morning. This is also where the county's first courthouse was constructed in 1805.
