New Lebanon School 1893-1967

In 1893, the corner stone for the "old" New Lebanon School was laid. The land on which the school was to be built was given to the school district by Mr. Milo Mead, with the condition that it should always be called New Lebanon. It was said that he wanted the whole town called New Lebanon, but had to settle for the school. He had owned almost the whole town, from where Byram Park now stands, right down to the Byram River.

In 1957, the Board of Education gratefully acknowledged the gift of land from Mr. and Mrs. Walter C. Teagle as a building site for New Lebanon School.  The current school opened in 1962.
