Town of Lebanon

The center of town resembles many picturesque New England villages with a library, churches and town hall clustered around the green. But this town green is very different. A mile in length and with a major portion still in agricultural use, the Lebanon Green is unique because of its size, its preservation as an example of an early town settlement and its assocation with the great events in the American Revolution. As the home of the War Governor, the town was the focal point of Connecticut's constributions to the patriot cause, earning Lebanon its place in history as "the heatbeat of the Revolution."
