Lisbon, the county seat of Columbiana County, is a village of 1.67 square miles with a population of 2,821 at the 2010 census. Founded in 1803, Lisbon is the second oldest town in Ohio and has the distinction of being the northernmost western town involving military actions during the American Civil War.
Today fine century homes, antique shops, craft & gift stores, as well astasty eating places, make an interesting walking tour in the village. Two-thirds of the buildings in Lisbon's downtown area are of 1800s vintage. The historic area consists of exceptional examples of federal, empire and Victorian architecture.
The Lisbon Historical Society maintains the Old Stone House Museum, furnished as a pre-Civil War home, as well as the restored Erie Railroad Station containing a comprehensive Civil War display.
The Lisbon Village Square is a public park with a gazebo, picnic tables and gardens, a bustling marketplace and a concert venue. Get a taste of the local flavor at Market on the Square every Saturday or stop in and listen to the local school's music clubs and local bands at the concerts held throughout the year.

Once in the park, you are free to enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the beach along the lake, fishing and boating in the waters, hiking the trail along the beach and playing a game on the park's basketball and volleyball courts.
