Pioneering Spirit

HebronThis small town is the biggest in the area when it comes to pioneering history. What began as an open prairie first settled by Judge Jesse Johnson is now a nice small town that retains the charm of downtown building and museums that celebrate its pioneering spirit.

Railroads and stagecoaches played a major role in Hebron’s development, and the history of those two things are celebrated at the Stagecoach Inn and Panhandle Depot museums.

Hebron is proud of its Kankakee River heritage, too. For a casual lunch to a special occasion, people from all around enjoy a meal along the Kankakee River at Marti’s Place at Ramsey’s Landing.

Do it in Hebron:

  • Enjoy a piece of pie at The Country Kitchen or relax with friends at Suzy’s Diner
  • Enjoy great prime rib, seafood or pasta dishes at Hebron’s restaurant along the Kankakee River — Marti’s Place at Ramsey’s Landing
  • Visit the Stagecoach Inn and Panhandle Depot to view community artifacts, railroad memorabilia and an exhibit on military service
  • Celebrate each fall and winter at the Hebron Block Party and Hebron Winterfest
