Welcome to the web site of the Hebron Historical Society. We are a non-profit corporation established in 1966 "to develop interest in, preserve, and promote Hebron history by every feasible means to as wide an audience as possible.”
Whether you are a first-time visitor or a regular user of the site, we hope you will enjoy learning more about Hebron’s long and colorful history and about the events and programs we will be sponsoring in the months ahead.
If you have items recollecting Hebron’s past, for which you hold an appreciation but no longer have the storage space, the Hebron Historical Society might well be interested in receiving them. We appreciate pictures of past events, school year memorabilia, historic clothing, old tools, whatever came from Hebron in years gone by. Just contact us on the menu tab above and we’ll talk!
By clicking on “Hebron History”, you’ll find dozens of stories about key events and distinguished citizens from Hebron’s past, as well as articles about Society-sponsored programs and projects from recent years.
Thank you for your interest in Hebron history. We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming meetings or programs. If you are interested in becoming a member, click on the “Memberships” tab above to get a printable application.
Halloween Special: 17th Century Witchcraft Trials in Connecticut?
Where in Connecticut did Witchcraft Trials take place? Were any trials held in Hebron? To speak about CT witchcraft, the Hebron Historical Society is bringing Dick Tomlinson to Old Town Hall on October 16th. The doors will open at 7:00 for a "meet and greet", with the presentation beginning at 7:30.
Dick Tomlinson is well qualified to speak about "Understanding Our Connecticut Ancestors Through Witchcraft Trials". As a historian and author, Tomlinson has researched many subjects. His most recent book is appropriately entitled Witchcraft Prosecution: Chasing the Devil in Connecticut.
Mr. Tomlinson's forebears have lived in Connecticut since 1633. He is an active member of the CT Historical Society, the CT Society of Genealogists, the Association for the Study of Connecticut History, and the Descendants of the Founders of Ancient Windsor.
Do join us on October 16th, 7:00 at Old Town Hall and learn about this fascinating subject. Programs are always free for Historical Society members. Donations, which help support our programs and properties, are greatly appreciated.
