Enjoy Hebron - It's Here to Stay


old town hallOld Town HallWelcome to the web site of the Hebron Historical Society. We are a non-profit corporation incorporated in May 1965 "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.


Historic Hebron Day 2015

Visit Vintage Hebron

The Hebron Historical Society invites all in the Hebron Community and elsewhere to see and learn about Historic Hebron. Visit a one-room school; see folks in colonial dress; listen to music being played on a 19th century reed organ; walk along the sites of old water-powered mills; see the interior of several centuries-old buildings; visit Hebron’s historic sites; purchase small consumables from the country store; and, oh, so much more.

Set aside Saturday, September 19th, from 10 am to 4 pm as the day you can actually see the interior of many of Hebron’s old buildings, and listen to guides dressed in historic attire provide details about the buildings. Feel free to take photos capturing the historic feeling of each location.

Although available at all sites, the Hebron Historical Society suggests you start your Historic Hebron Day tour at Old Town Hall where you can pick up a map and description of all historic sites. While there you can also see the schedule for the organ recital at the 1849 Hope Valley Church and the Barbershop Quartet at Old Town Hall.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see two old schoolhouses, three historic churches, the World War II Civilian Aircraft Observation Post, the 1899 Douglas Library, historic cemeteries, and a special guided tour along Hope Valley’s historic mill sites. Hebron is the location, September 19th is the date, and hours between 10 am and 4 pm are when you’ll want to be there. The Hebron Historical Society and Country Carpenters both promise a great day for visitors of all ages.
