Inscription.  Lebanon Courthouse was constructed during the 1840s when Lebanon, the county seat of DeKalb County, was a thriving community with inns, taverns, and government offices. This building, built for courthouse use, remained in use as a courthouse until 1876, when the stagecoaches serving Lebanon gave way to progress. The county seat was then moved to Fort Payne, where railway service was available.

This marker was erected as a part of the DeKalb 150 Sesquicentennial Celebration, 1836-1986.
