The Hebron Historical Society Calerdar is Back !!!
Each year we get a great response when we offer our calendar of prizes. This year 30 nice prizes, and as always after a winning name is drawn it goes back into the pot able to be drawn again and again. These prizes will be just in time for the holiday season with the drawing taking place at our Board of Directors meeting December 13.

We wish to thank all the came to the Hebron Historical Society yard sale.
We had a great sale, and a lot of really nice item for the sale.
Special thanks to those that helped on what was 2 very hot and humid days.
Extra thanks to Director Richard Hatch, Vice President Bob Swift. Member Conrad Conant who I might add is always there whatever we are doing ready to pitch in!
Member Charlie Tobie, helping move oh so many items, and Director Ruth MacDonald for organizing.
Kudos for non members Jane and Diane that also took the time to help us out.
Doesn't look like much does it ! It's however the remaing piece of the East Hebron Train Station. We are trying our utmost to save the building from demolition. Once it's gone it's gone.
Research into the buildings past is ongoing. If you happen to haver any old photos we would really like to see them.
The latest information:
Restoration so long delayed has finally started. I am pleased to report that we have jacking up the building to install a number of cement piers to support and level the building. Next phase will be the repair of the roof area, and installation of new shingles. We expect to tarp one half of the roof as we expose the wood under the old shingles to protect, and allow us to examine the wooden roof boards.
We are still getting donations for the restoration effort albeit slowly, but every dollar counts, and we very much appreciate what has been donated so far. We have set up a seperate account for all donations. Monies in this account are waiting to be used for materials. We have already removed the old floor in the office area, and with some donated funds replaced all the floor joists, and some of the sills in that office area. A sizable number of concrete pads to set the building onto were also purchased, and await the building when it is finally moved.

We accept donations any way you can donate. Many have chosen to send money directly to the Hebron Historical Society, some have dropped them off at the local Hebron Storekeepers store next to our restoration site. The Hebron Town Office is another good oppurtunity.
