WC Election Commission, Historic Lebanon commemorating Old Post Office
Tuesday, April 9, 2013

The Wilson County Election Commission and Historic Lebanon are joining forces to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Old Post Office groundbreaking. The cornerstone for the building located at 203 East Main St in Lebanon was set on October 30th, 1913. To celebrate the event Historic Lebanon and the Election Commission are collecting pictures and stories to create an anniversary book. 

“Historic Lebanon is excited to be partnering with the Wilson County Election Commission on this project,” said Kim Parks, Executive Director of Historic Lebanon. “This is an opportunity to bring Lebanon and Wilson County’s past to life through pictures and firsthand accounts of events,” Parks continued.

Phillip Warren, Administrator of Elections said, “The Old Post Office building is the oldest public building operating in Wilson County. This building has been a witness to many events and changes in Lebanon over the last 100 years.” 

“We plan to include personal remembrances as well as pictures to tell the story of this historic building and its impact on the lives of Lebanon and Wilson County residents” Warren said. Warren and Parks invite anyone with pictures or stories about their experiences involving the Old Post Office to contact them.

For more information about having your story or pictures included in this book, please contact the Election Commission at 444-0216 or Historic Lebanon at 547-9795.
