Established as a post office on February 16, 1876 at a location four miles southeast of the present location. The Rock Island Railroad missed the towns of Salem and Lebanon as it came through the county in 1879. A new location for Lebanon near the tracks was laid out, and businesses and houses were moved to the new location from both Lebanon and Salem.
The ethnicity of its settlers is not known.
