Lebanon – The Wilson County Seat

Lebanon is the county seat of much-desired, quickly growing Wilson County. Wilson County is a much-desired location for those looking to relocate to the Nashville area because of its close proximity to the city. The city of Lebanon borders Davidson County, (Nashville) to the east and is conveniently located off Interstate 40 which makes it an attractive location for businesses.

Much of Lebanon has a more rural feel but that doesn’t mean you have to travel miles for shopping or a night out to eat. Lebanon combines the best of both worlds with homes in a peaceful, rural setting, as well as a variety of homes in an active small city. If you are looking for older homes or newer homes, smaller homes or larger homes, town homes or upscale homes, an established neighborhood or a new subdivision, Lebanon has what you are looking for!
