About Lebanon County

First settled in 1723, Lebanon County was created by an Act of Assembly in 1813 from portions of Dauphin and Lancaster Counties. The original German settlers tilled the valley’s fertile soil, creating an economic base that continues today and blends with the residential, commercial and industrial development presently occurring. Also reflective of the County’s “Pennsylvania Dutch” heritage are its pastoral landscape, attractive farms and outstanding dairy and pork products, especially Lebanon Bologna. Lebanon County also is blessed with an abundance of open space and conservation lands that provide numerous recreational opportunities.
