Postcard Tuesday: Lebanon's Town Square

View of Public Square, Lebanon, Tenn.

I don't have a date on this card, but based on the cars, I'd say it was the 1920's or 30's. Some things haven't changed much since this post card was made but there are other differences. Most of the buildings seen in the background here are the same building that are on the square today. However, many of the buildings on the other side not seen here have been replaced.

Lebanon, TN Town Square

Just like in the post card back then, in the center of the town square is a statue of Confederate Gen Robert Hatton. The wrought iron fence doesn't go all the way around the statue on the post card, and it's not there at all on this picture taken about 5 years ago. A fence completely surrounds the statue today. The lights around the statue are also the same.

Cuz's Antiques at Night

Most of the old buildings around the square are now antique stores. I hear there's over 20 within a couple of blocks of the square. Cuz's might just be the most famous.
