Overview
The name Lebanon comes from the biblical cedars of ancient Lebanon, a Semitic word meaning "white" that refers to the nearby mountain with perpetual snows on its summit. Established in 1761, the name for this town was probably selected by the many early settlers who were from Lebanon, Connecticut, including Eleazar Wheelock, founder of Dartmouth College. Lebanon was the original location of the Indian Charity School from which Dartmouth is descended. In 1781, Lebanon was one of the towns that attempted to join Vermont, but later returned to New Hampshire. Lebanon was incorporated as a city in 1957.
