Lebanon Tennessee is called ?Cedar City? by the locals, because of the abundance of cedar trees in the area. Located thirty miles east of Nashville, Lebanon is home to several country music stars as well as Cumberland University, a small 4 year liberal arts college. Lebanon is considered one the South?s hidden treasures, which still offers real estate values and quiet country living. The median household income is under $50,000 a year and the median home value is still under $175,000. Lebanon has a land area of 29.2 square miles and the population density is 824 people per square mile. Cedars of Lebanon, named for the dense cedar forest that were written about in Lebanon during biblical times, is one of Lebanon?s main attractions. It contains 900 recreation acres and 8,100 acres, which are operated by the Tennessee Parks Division as a State Forest.
Lebanon is still filled with old Southern charm. Pre-civil war homes still can be found around the city and anti-bellum farms still dot the countryside. The restaurants and nightlife in Lebanon include cuisine from around the world and music that attracts bluegrass fans, as well as fans of one of Lebanon's favorite sons, Charlie Daniels. There?s no shortage of entertainment in Lebanon or in its neighbor Nashville, which is a thirty minute car ride away. The outdoor life is still one of the main attractions of Lebanon. Hunting, fishing, boating, swimming and golf are all within fifteen minutes of downtown Lebanon and apple picking orchards are a must visit in the fall.
