Introduction

Settled in 1795, South Lebanon is one of the the oldest villages in Warren County. Originally known as Deerfield, the village was a stopping place for many early settlers. It currently has 4,100 residents.

Summary

The village of South Lebanon sits along the border of Union and Washington Townships in central Warren County 25 miles northeast of Cincinnati. The largely undeveloped acreage of peaceful creeks and rolling landscape of the area has it poised for a rapid population boom with the recent housing developments. This corner of Warren County remains one of the fastest growing housing areas in the region.

Transportation

I-71 and St. Rt. 48 are the primary access to the village. The James M. Cox Dayton International Airport is 37 miles away, with the Lebanon Airport just six miles away.

Hospitals

The Union Township/South Lebanon joint fire district provides fire and EMS service to the village. Bethesda Medical Center at Arrow Springs offers the region state-of-the-art outpatient medical care, including 24-hour emergency services and comprehensive diagnostic testing. Across the county is Atrium Medical Center, and just a few minutes south on I-71 is Bethesda North Hospital, one of the area’s busiest hospitals.
