Pure Pioneering Spirit
This 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 town that celebrates its pioneering spirit by retaining the charm of its downtown buildings and museums.
Railroads and stagecoaches played a major role in Hebron’s development, and their history is celebrated at the Stagecoach Inn and Panhandle Depot museum. Hebron is also proud of its Kankakee River heritage, so be sure to stop by this beautiful river.
While you’re in Hebron, grab a bite from one of its unique restaurants, such as Pav’s All-American Grill or The Country Kitchen, and be sure to make a stop at Goodbyes Second Hand Shop to find a lost treasure.
Things to do in Hebron:
- Enjoy a piece of pie at The Country Kitchen, relax with friends at Pav’s All-American Grill, or enjoy a slice of pizza at either Wanna Pizza or Lighthouse Pizza.
- Visit the Stagecoach Inn and Panhandle Depot to view community artifacts, railroad memorabilia, and an exhibit on military service.
- Make a stop at Goodbyes Second Hand Shop, an antique and secondhand shop that ensures a unique vintage find.
