History walk to complete first phase
27 Jul 2023
The first phase of Hebron’s Walking History Trail holds 16 sites, starting at Roosevelt Park to cover four stories — Fort Butler, the original survey of Hebron, the city’s founding families and the history of the park.
“We are attempting to tell the history of Hebron with historic buildings,” Karla Joe, who is on the History Trail committee, said.
The committee, Joe, David Cording, Linda McLaughlin Simonsen and Lori Baldwin Werner, have been working on the trail for more than a year. In February of 2022, the committee had completed a few interviews with some of Hebron’s older residents, along with naming important points on the trail, like the historic Thayer County Courthouse and three locations related to the Suffrage movement.
