Lebanon in Marion County, Kentucky — The American South (East South Central)
First Presbyterian Church
It was said after the war was over that the damage done to the church was about $5,300.00. The church asked the U.S. government to help pay for damage done to the building during the war, but they got nowhere with the letter they sent. So the building got repaired with the small amount of money they had. The building looked like photo #2 until it was torn down in 1935.
Erected by The City of Lebanon.
