Warren County Historical Society and Museum
The museum located in old Harmon Hall (the building on the right in the above photo) has an extensive collection of genealogy and local history materials. Included are Shaker history, National Normal University information, church histories, topical files, family files, local newspapers since 1807, atlases, works by Warren County authors, some court records, cemetery records and more.
The building on the left in the above photo is the former Lebanon Post Office Building. We are fortunate that the museum has been able to acquire this building and will soon begin the first phase of construction for the expansion of the museum into that building.
