Lebanon Neighborhood Guide

Lebanon is a city located in the Willamette Valley 15 miles from Albany and 20 miles from Corvallis. This quiet little town nestled in the foothills of the Oregon Waterfalls, had a population of more than 15,982 in 2014. It is symbolized as a friendly city that wants to maintain its historical culture.

Talking about the history, the city has been founded by American train wagon pioneers, who tried to find land large enough to build houses and cultivate fields. Thus, in the fall of 1847, Jeremiah Ralston decided to stop his three wagons in the city now known as Lebanon Oregon. He decided to settle there, started mapping the city and gave it a name. Given the large amount of cedars along the river, this made him think of biblical references to the cedars of Lebanon and partly related to his birthplace, Lebanon, Tennessee.

Lebanon is also served by the Lebanon Community Schools public school district, which includes Lebanon High School. It is also home to the private East Linn Christian Academy, which serves students from preschool through twelfth grade (PreK-12). We can also find the Western University of Health Sciences that has opened their College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific, Northwest in August 2011. This is the first new medical school in Oregon since Oregon Health & Science University was established
