Spring cleaning ?
At the Hebron Historical Society we are as anxious as everybody else to get things moving again.
We are pleased to announce that on Saturday July 24 we will hold our annual yard sale.
If you have something that you could donate we would greatly appreciate it.
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 newest information:
Summer 2021, it seems like an eternity since we started trying to get help moving our little building. The latest info is it's soon to be moved. Preperations are being made. Fingers crossed !
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 once the building is moved to the new position. 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.
