Established 1815

I’ve driven by this Anderson County church countless times on Highway 178 but never stoppped to look. It’s really a very special community landmark. Lebanon, I imagine, is the community name: both this church and the old community school nearby are so named.

The cemetery behind is old (for U.S. standards) with graves dating from the early 1800s. The plaque near the church door explains that the church was established in 1815, and the present building was built in 1911. (I love the shape of this church and its tower.) More pictures are here.



  1. It is a beautiful church. Your extra pictures added a lot. I especially like the stain glass.
