Ligon & Bobo Funeral Home is the oldest funeral home in Lebanon.  The business began in 1920 as Ligon & Son Funeral Home, located near the public square in downtown Lebanon.  It was operated by Mr. Charles Horace Ligon and his son, Raymond.

In 1938, Mr. Ligon was joined by his daughter Vera and her husband Alex Bobo. They purchased the present location on West Main Street, which had been a private residence since 1828.  It was the former home of Robert L. Caruthers, founder of the Cumberland University Law School.

In 2003, the Ligon & Bobo Funeral Home – Fiddlers Grove Chapel was built by David Brooks and Clark McKinney, the current owners.  The building showcases a viewing room and embalming room.  Most of the funeral and embalming equipment on display was used by Mr. Ligon and Mr. and Mrs. Bobo.

In 2009, an addition was built on to house the antique horse drawn hearse that was donated in memory of Mr. Alfred McFarland.  The horse drawn hearse was manufactured around 1900 by the Sayers and Scovill Company of Cincinnati, Ohio.
