Lebanon: Preserving Our History and Our Agriculture
Stop by the market at the Lebanon Town Hall, located on part of the historic Lebanon Green, items sold at the market include vegetables, fruits, cheeses, meats, honey products, maple syrup, flora and fauna, baked goods, prepared foods, sweets, soaps, artistry and more; then take a stroll around the place known as "The Heartbeat of the Revolution."
The main part of the Green is located across the street from Town Hall and features a 1.5 mile walking trail around the site. Along the way, visitors can see the Revolutionary War Office where Gov. Johnathan Trumbull convened the Council of Safety to defend Connecticut and supply provisions to the Continental Army. Over the course of America's fight for independence, the War Office welcomed prominent Revolutionary War figures, including George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette. The area around the Green also includes the homes of Connecticut's first governor, Johnathan Trumbull and his son Johnathan Trumbull Jr., America's second Speaker of the House.
We are also just a short drive to several of the town's historic cemeteries which include the burial sites of Gov. Trumbull and Declaration of Independence signatory William Williams.
Our farmers' market is a great place where Connecticut residents or visitors can experience what rural eastern Connecticut offers today and glimpse where history was made for both our state and our country.
