Historic Lebanon announced this week plans for the 8th Annual Historic Places Tour, slated for Saturday, Dec. 5 from 5 until 8:30 p.m.
The tour highlights several of Lebanon's historic homes and structures. Historic Lebanon hopes to increase awareness of Lebanon's history and to stress the importance of local preservation efforts via the tour. According to tour organizers, in light of the recent approval of a historic zoning ordinance by the Lebanon City Council, Historic Lebanon will continue to showcase areas of the city that deserve preservation efforts and historic zoning.
This year's tour sites include: the City of Lebanon Museum at 200 North Castle Heights Avenue, the Adams home at 616 West Main Street, the Boyd home at 229 Pennsylvania Avenue, the Burns home at 134 South Hatton Avenue, the Beall home at 114 Hatton, the Slaughter home at 207 East Spring Street and Historic Lebanon's new office location - housed in the Law Office of C. Tracey Parks at 324 West Main Street.
Tickets for the tour are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets will be available two weeks before the tour at the Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce. Tickets will be available the night of the tour at the City of Lebanon Museum and any of the tour sites.
Tour participants may start their tour at any of the sites. For convenience, locations are listed on the back of advance tickets. Brochures will be available at each stop and include a tour route map. The tour map will also be available at www.historiclebanontn.org prior to the event.
Historic Lebanon will offer a "door prize" again this year. The drop box for ticket stubs will be at the Slaughter home at 207 East Spring Street. Annual sponsors of the tour are Ligon & Bobo Funeral Home, CedarStone Bank, Thackston Family Foundation, Wilson Bank & Trust and Main Street Property Management.
