Hebron Historical Society Publications

"The Hebron Historical Society has published a collection of books and papers from the their archives as our attempt to bring to our members and friends a representative sampling of the history of the Town of Hebron. These papers and documents reveal a life and time from Shepardsfield's earliest years to present-day Hebron. Many of the talks and addresses were submitted during the early meetings back in the 1970's and have added immeasurably to efforts to preserve and disseminate the records and artifacts of the Town for our future generations.

We are indebted to the officers and directors of the Society for their dedication and patience in proofreading many times and adding their suggestions and corrections. Their interest in the Town is matched only by that of those members and friends who have sharred their knowledge, experiences, and passions over the years. We anticipate that our readers will find the discourses pleasurable and enlightening, adding to their appreciation of Hebron's rich history."
