Hebron: The Porch Swing Capital Community in Thayer County, Nebraska

The name Hebron means a place of refuge and that is just what you’ll find here in Hebron, the heart and County Seat of Thayer County, Nebraska.  Hebron is located  at the junction of Highways 81 and 136. You don’t have to drive to take in the view of the vast plains of Nebraska, with the Hebron Municipal Airport you can  fly in and out of town with ease.   The historic Oregon Trail is just north of the city and the Little Blue River runs through the southern part of town.   Lose yourself at the Arrowhead Garden Arboretum.  Take your friends and family to sit for a spell at the World's Largest Porch Swing.  Visit the Hebron Post Office to view the mural by Miss Eldora Lorenzini as part of the New Deal’s WPA Federal Art Project.  The 12 ft. x 4 ft. mural depicts the scene of a corn train that left Hebron on the Rock Island Railroad. Hebron’s vibrant community welcomes you to take in its host of parks, hotels, the Majestic Theater and 9-hole golf course.  Come and sit for a spell.
