New home for HHS. Originally a mid 1800 school house.

Welcome to the Hebron, Maine Historical Society. We are proudly in our 52nd year. Our first meeting took place on August 14, 1971.   

 

We are located in the area of western Maine known as "Oxford Hills". The towns of Harrison, Hebron, Norway, Otisfield, Oxford, Paris,Waterford and West Paris comprise this area.

The Hebron Historical Society was incorporated in 1993 for the purposes of:

  • (a) to preserve, for the benefit of the general public, the history of the Town of Hebron, the Oxford Hills area and the State of Maine
  • (b) to provide to the general public a resource of historical data, documents and artifacts for the purposes of study, broad public education and enjoyment
  • (c) to provide for lectures, exhibits, printed or visual materials, social events and other activities associated therewith.

 

In October 2008, the Internal Revenue Service determined that the Hebron Historical Society is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Society is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2533 of the Code. Any donations to the Society are tax deductible for the giver.
