Lebanon, the Wilson County seat, was founded in 1801. It gets its name from the abundance of cedar trees found in the area. Today, the rapidly growing city is home to more than 23,000 residents. Though it has become a distribution hub for companies such as Famous Footwear and Performance Food Group, the areas history is still evident in its old Public Square. It is also home to Cumberland University, a small, private college founded in 1842. It is also headquarters for Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.
