Before Lebanon formerly got its name, it was known as Steitztown, a town located in the central part of Lebanon Valley. Tribes that used to reside in this area of the land was recorded to be the Shawnee, Susquehannock, Gawanese, Lenape and Nanticoke people until 1720 because that marks its discovery by European colonists.
The original ‘Lebanon bologna’ was first made here - it is a type of smoked, fermented and cured sausage made from beef. Some play argue that it was a type of exotic salami, you will have try to fine some restaurants to try out this authentic dish for yourself. A nice time to visit this Pennsylvania city would be during New Year’s Eve because the city’s New Year celebration is very different from what you would find in Times Square. The celebration involves dropping and raising something unique and different every New Year’s Eve...a steel ball filled with Lebanon Bologna suspended over a fire department truck’s ladder. Unorthodox and unique. The Lebanon Bologna used for the celebration is a contribution from Weaver’s Famous Lebanon Bologna.
