Lebanon is a small town where the place to go is either Walmart or Kroger. Little to do for the youth in the town aside from frequenting school or public parks. The roads run fairly smooth but the industry fueling this area is manufacturing. Well paying jobs are found at the Cooperage (making casks for whiskey) or at the local car parts manufacturers.

I love the small town with history. Even though it is small it has plays with our locol people performing. It also has the arts on that same stage when a play is not being performed. It is the home of Turtle Man, Ham Days and Makers. mark. Now Layla Springs. who is on American Ideal
This is where I have lived all of my life. Everything here is great youcan get almost anything you want and if you can't get it here there are larger cities surrounding with only a 30 min drive. Only about and hour drive from here to Louisville one of the biggest cities in the state.
