Interesting, well-displayed

Very nice museum in a small town. Lebanon has so much history and it is well documented in this museum. The rotating display of art was a fun addition!

This place is so full of nostalgia. I love seeing all of the buggies and tools they used back in the day.

A history lesson for Warren County residents. Take a couple of hours and get to know more about the areas history. It's not the Smithsonian, but we'll done and interesting. Good rainy day trip along with the library next door. And, it's FREE for Warren County residents.

This little museum is well worth at least 1 hour of your time. There is enough to look at here that you may want more time. This place is very well kept and has something for everyone.

The Green is set up like old time stores! Lots to see and wonderful gift shop. One of the better small time museums around--to the credit of its director, Vicky.

Paid my admission at the front. In search of the underground railroad exhibit I wandered into an area where they were having a flea market by a different entrance. The WCHS woman attacked me as though I was trying to crash in without paying. She followed me to the elevator and put her foot in the door so I could... More
