On the banks of the Connecticut River and at the “Crossroads of New England” where Interstates 89 and 91 meet, Lebanon is the home to Dartmouth–Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth College’s Geisel School of Medicine, together comprising the largest medical facility between Boston, Massachusetts, and Burlington, Vermont.
With a 2020 population of just under 15,000 at the 2020 census, Lebanon is by far the largest town in the Upper Valley and in western New Hampshire. The routing of Interstates 89 and 91 through Lebanon and nearby White River Junction, Vermont, in addition to the growth of Dartmouth College, continues to drive the economic engine of the area.
The former mill town now has a mixed economy based on education, medical services, high-technology and retail. Along with the “Miracle Mile” commercial neighborhood, just south of the village of West Lebanon, a major shopping district has sprung up at the intersection of Route 12A and I-89 where most national big box stores can be found. Lebanon also offers easily accessible recreational facilities, including miles of hiking trails on the Boston Lot, Mascoma Lake and access to the CT River as well as Storr’s Hill municipal ski area.
