The Lebanon Historical Society (LHS) was incorporated with the State Historical Society of Wisconsin in October of 1997.  We’ve also been a branch of the Dodge County Historical Society since 1996.  Our purpose is to recount local history, collect pictures, memorabilia and artifacts, and preserve as much of our area’s past history as possible.  We erected six historical markers which are on display in Lebanon.  The historic Town Hall is the second oldest (1890) public building remaining in Lebanon, and is the home of the local museum.

The LHS holds monthly meetings on the third Sunday of the month, from September to May.  Each meeting begins with an interesting program, usually of historical nature.

The LHS membership is open to anyone wishing to join. You can join as an individual, family, business, individual lifetime or couple lifetime. Dues range from $5-$25 per year, $150 for an individual lifetime or $250 for a couple lifetime membership.  If you would like more information, please contact Edward W. Raether at 262-542-7872.

Donations of artifacts and monies are always appreciated.  We will also accept artifacts on a consignment basis.  The LHS is a 501(3)(c)Non-Profit Organization.
