Lebanon Honors Its Veterans
Lebanon Honors Its Veterans is dedicated to the sincere, heartfelt appreciation of all Lebanon veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice to enable their fellow residents and citizens to continue to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Soldiers Memorial Building
Built from 1886-1890 by Civil War Veterans as a memorial to their comrades and as a free public library. After the library moved to another building in 1909, the first floor was converted into a war museum. The building now serves as a memorial to veterans of all wars. The Memorial chamber, a consecrated chapel, contains marble tablets with the names of all Lebanon's Civil War Veterans.
The building appears to be the first of its use in New Hampshire. The architect was a local war veteran Ferdinand Davis. It is in Vernacular Queen Anne style.
Lebanon Library Displays
Each year during Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the Lebanon Library hosts a display area honoring Veterans who have served in the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
