Lebanon in Warren County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Located on the north side of lot No. 20 of the original 1802 plat of Lebanon, the structure at 3 S. Broadway was erected circa 1840. Two additions to the rear of the building were made between 1895 and 1907. Its beautiful Second Empire style mansard roof, with red, green and gray overlapping slate tile, was added before 1900.
In 1890, John W. Lingo moved his 26-year-old business here from E. Mulberry St. It soon became "the largest combined hardware and implement retail establishment in Ohio". His huge Spring Opening and Sale attracted thousands and filled the street with dozens of buggies, plows and hay mowers for sale. Lingo's closed in 1977.
Erected by Lebanon Rotary Club.
