Inscription.  
Lebanon's first train arrived on Feb. 17, 1881. Passenger service began on May 30. The first depot was built at that time with a men's and ladies' waiting room and one for the station agent. By 1885, the Cincinnati, Lebanon & Northern Railway owned it. In 1894, the tracks went from the 3 ft. narrow gauge to the 4 ft. 8˝ in. standard.

By the mid-20th century Penn Central owned the station. It was torn down in 1960 and the small depot at Kings Mill was moved to Lebanon. The Lebanon Council of Garden Clubs bought it in April 1972. This replica of an old 1890s depot was designed and built with community assistance. Its grand opening took place in May 1974.
 
Erected by Lebanon Rotary Club.
