Mt. Lebanon, PA Community Information
Mt. Lebanon is spread across more than six square miles of Western Pennsylvania’s hills, but it once was contested land. Area farmers sought to avoid a federal excise tax on whiskey in 1794. As part of the largest civil uprising between the Revolution and the Civil War, a two-day attack destroyed “Bower Hill,” the nearby plantation of Inspector of Revenue John Neville, an act that brought an army of 11,000 men to enforce the laws of the new federal government. Threat from Native American attacks remained real until 1794 – 1795.
Mt. Lebanon is a suburb of Pittsburgh 7 miles south of the city's downtown. In 1912, Mount Lebanon Township was incorporated as a "First Class Township" under Pennsylvania state law. Uptown Mt. Lebanon is one of the more built up central business districts outside of Pittsburgh, featuring numerous coffee shops, small galleries, pizzerias, and clothing boutiques. Additionally at Woodruff & Smith we are proud to be the accepted choice for a HVAC contractor for both residential and commercial repairs.
