The city's charm and beauty have
been showcased twice in major Hollywood motion pictures. In
1977 part of Harper Valley PTA starring Barbara Eden was filmed
here. For the movie Lebanon, Ohio changed its name, but only
for one week. It became Harper Valley Ohio. Two of the greatest
features of the film, as far as our city is concerned, were
the opening and closing credits. They were shown over beautiful
helicopter shots of Lebanon and the surrounding area.
The Village Ice Cream Parlor was featured in
one scene of the movie, with local residents serving as extras!
