The 1765 Dana House (at 3 Elm Street West, near the SAU building on Seminary Hill in West Lebanon) is the oldest known house still standing in the City of Lebanon. It has been preserved as a historic resource with occasional use as a meeting space but it has not been made widely available to the residents of Lebanon.
Have you been to the Dana House? What does it mean to you?
What do you see as the future of the Dana House – should it be preserved as it is, or should it be put to use (e.g. as a house museum, as a community gathering space, or perhaps something else)?
Please let us know your thoughts! Stories, ideas, proposals, and requests can be submitted via the Boards and Committees Form to the Heritage Commission or by email to Associate Planner Rebecca Owens at email@example.com.
