Lebanon is a Borough in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the borough population was 1,065, which has jumped to 1,830, as of the Census Bureau's 2006 population estimate.[3]

Lebanon was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 26, 1926, from portions of Clinton Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 20, 1926. Additional portions of Clinton Township were annexed in 1962.[7]

Also known as 'Ol' Lebby', Lebanon is located north of the Round Valley Reservoir. The Borough was known in the early part of the 19th century as Jacksonville and later as Lebanonville, Lebanonville Depot and finally Lebanon, a station on the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The center of Lebanon has changed little in the past century. The Dutch Reformed Church is one of the oldest churches in the County. Records of the church begin in 1769, however, the church is cited as early as 1747.[8]
