If you're talking Lebanons, add Pennsylvania to the list.

It's the home of a lunch meat that's popular in Pennsylvania and nearby areas - an Amish specialty known as Lebanon bologna. It looks more like salami than bologna and comes in sweet and savory versions.

Well, I was talking Louisvilles, but yeah. I'm familiar with "Lebanon Bologna".
There is a Lebanon, Nebraska as well, pop. 80. http://www.city-data.com/forum/newre...e=1&p=54512462 There are a bunch of places in Nebraska with names of Pennsylvania places, e.g. York (also York County), Hershey, Lancaster County, etc. The area must have been settled by Pennsylvanians!

There is a string of towns along a railroad line that runs north-south through central Oklahoma that bear the names of Main Line suburbs.

Ardmore is the largest of these towns. There are six in all: Wayne, Overbrook, Paoli, Ardmore, Wynnewood, and Berwyn. (This letter in the Daily Oklahoman erroneously lists a seventh, Marietta, that has no Main Line equivalent.)

The railroad in question was surveyed by a fellow who had worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and according to the letter, it was built with Pennsylvania Railroad money.

I am from Oregon, so this one should be easy for me, since Oregon ripped off the names of many cities and stuck them in their state. Even Oregon's largest and most famous city was ripped off from the original city in Maine.. Thanks Mr. Lewis and Clark

Portland, Oregon - Portland, Maine
Dallas, Oregon - Dallas, Texas
Oakland, Oregon - Oakland, California
Springfield, Oregon - Springfield, Everywhere
Albany, Oregon - Albany, New York
Ashland, Oregon (My Home Town ) - Ashland, Everywhere
Sherwood, Oregon - Sherwood, Arkansas, Wisconsin and prob many other places
Hillsboro, Oregon - Hillsboro, Ohio/Texas
Woodburn, Oregon - Woodburn, Indiana
Salem , Oregon (Capitol of Oregon) - Salem, MA (and many others)
Medford, Oregon - Medford, MA
Newport, Oregon - Newport, RI
North Bend, Oregon - North Bend, WA
Redmond, Oregon - Redmond, WA
Sandy, OR - Sandy, UT

Milwaukie , OR - Milwaukee , WI (Ok, cheating a bit because name is bit different, but pronunciation is the same).

Oh man, I am sure there are so many more.. Oregon is a state of ripped off city names ..

I was going to mention the same thing but you beat me to it!

The fact that there's a Minneapolis in North Carolina (nothing more than a smattering of houses and a post office) is completely absurd to me.

Technically, yes, as do

Bristol, TN and VA
Texarkana, AR and TX

There is a difference between the two Kansas Cities and the other two paired next-door neighbors:

In Bristol and Texarkana, the state line is the main street of both cities; their downtowns are adjacent (and the Texarkanas' post office building sits astride the state line).

In Kansas City, the state line is just another street, and the two cities' respective downtowns are separated by the floodplain surrounding the point where the Kansas and Missouri rivers meet. North of this point, the state line's a river.
