The Lebanon County Heritage Trail was designed to create community-wide greenway networks and connect to county identified greenways and trails. Currently this 100 mile driving trail is in the beginning stages of development. Eventually each municipality that touches the trail will bear signage, and historic sites along the trail will boast informational plaques of interest. Future plans also include a safe route for bicycling.
In September 2009 the Heritage Trail expanded with its first ever “City of Lebanon Walking Tour”! Participants had a great time visiting historic downtown Lebanon using free maps to guide and inform walkers about the unique architecture of downtown buildings. Some of the architectural styles date back to the mid-1700’s.
The next phase of walking trail map brochures was completed in early 2013 with the introduction of the Annville, Jonestown and Palmyra brochures. They were introduced with a mini-walking trail event with the 2012 Annual Appeal Kick-Off event hosted by Reverend Paul and Becky Fullmer from Annville. Rev. Fullmer, who was the guiding force in the development of this map brochure conducted a walking mini-trail for our guests using the Annville Heritage Trail map and offering the historical information on the locations everyone passed by along the way.
