Originally the home of Dr. William Henry Stoy and later the country‚Äôs first courthouse in 1813, today the Lebanon County Historical Society‚Äôs Stoy Museum houses thousands of artifacts native to the area. Located in downtown Lebanon, the museum is open for tours on a ‚Äúdrop-in‚ÄĚ basis. However, it is requested that groups of ten or more schedule tours in advance. The hour-and-a-half tour includes over 40 separate displays that recreate early shops and offices, a one-room schoolhouse, a railroad station, fire apparatuses, a turn-of-the-century general store, and community industries such as blacksmithing, farming and milling, carpentry, weaving, printing, shoemaking, and mining. The Hauck Memorial Research Archives is a user-friendly center for genealogical and county history research. The Gift Shoppe sells Society publications, publications from other sources on topics of local historical interest, and a variety of handcrafted gifts.
