Update: Boone County Historical Records Moved to Lebanon Library

Last month we noted that the Boone County Courthouse had permamently loaned some 300+ books of historical records to the Ralph W. Stark Heritage Center of the Lebanon Public Library. This move gave the courthouse some much-needed space, and also made the records more available to the public by placing them at the library. The records are all pre-1940 and include marriages, guardianships, wills, estates, probate and insane records.

Librarian Jamey Hixon cautions that it's going to take several months for all these records to be prepared for public access, but already they have indexed 8 volumes of insane records, and this index will be placed on the library's website in the coming weeks.
