Lane, a Savannah banker who envisioned a location for agricultural experimentation. Currently owned by Lane’s grandson Howard Morrison, Jr. and his wife, Mary Reynolds Morrison, the third generation of the Lane-Morrison family to continuously own Lebanon, the property’s preservation and continual use reflect coastal Georgia’s unique agricultural and architectural history.
