Lebanon Mills

From the time European settlers first came to the area, Lebanon’s rivers have been utilized to create development opportunities and they are a central part of Lebanon’s history. The Mascoma River made Lebanon a wealthy mill town for most of its first two centuries, and as recently as the 1950s. Several of these historic mills have been converted to present day uses, illustrating the benefits of adaptive re-use of historic structures. The dams still in the Mascoma River and its tributaries are also evidence of the City’s industrial heritage.
