Mount Lebanon, a community off Farm Road 2088 just west of Simpsonville and fourteen miles northwest of Gilmer in western Upshur County, was probably settled sometime before 1900. In the mid-1930s it had a school and a number of houses. After World War II the school was closed and converted into a church. In 1990 Mount Lebanon was a dispersed rural community with a church and a few scattered houses.
