Now there is some architecture!! Would love to explore the inside - I am sure just as beautiful as the outside! - Cathy Green
Thanks, Cathy: Don't know if any of the homes in Lebanon are open for tours, but will post if we learn that tours are available.

A single (respectful) walk around almost any block from Main Street Downtown is a wonderful experience.

Our family walked from a Main Street restaurant to see the brick home of a kinsman who was a U.S. Congressman - the late Frank Chelf - and couldn't stop the stroll until we'd covered several blocks. The highlight was a visit to St. Augustine Church. That made it a totally unforgettable day, and prompted as many returns to Marion County as could be fitted in.

And a by the way: It should be evident immediately to any traveller north, as they travel toward Lebanon from Taylor County and see the view from Muldraugh Hill, that, as pleasing as that is, it is only a hint of the treasures on any side road, avenue, and country lane. There are visual surprises, history and intriguing mysteries around every turn. Our thanks, not only to Larry Smith, but also to another favorite photographer, Kenny Browning, "The Feedman," for providing windows of insight on Marion County. -EW
