This tour highlights buildings, sites and areas which are unique to Lebanon and Wilson County. In all there are twenty-eight county wide sites, many listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The sites along the tour route are identified with a numbered sign. Corresponding numbers are found on the tour map. The first nine sites are within easy walking distance of each other and sites #11 -13 are centered on the former campus of the Castle Heights Military Academy and are also an enjoyable stroll. Sites #14-15 are focused around Cumberland University and encourage walking.
The remainder of the sites (#16-#28) take you on an historic drive through Wilson County.
The purpose of the Historic Sites driving Tour is two-fold. First, is to educate the public on the history of Lebanon/Wilson County and encourage tourism, and two, is to raise awareness for the importance of preservation.
Historic Lebanon extends a very appreciative “thank-you” to the owners of these properties; many of which are privately held, please be respectful as you enjoy the tour.
Historic Lebanon is proud to bring this Historic Driving Tour to the public.
This project was funded in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
