It may be small in size, but it’s big in pioneering spirit. Once an open prairie set along the beautiful Kankakee River, Hebron is now a town that celebrates its pioneering history with each charmingly preserved downtown building and museum.
It’s a piece of small-town America that you don’t often see anymore, one which draws in locals, visitors, and Hebron-lovers each fall and winter to celebrate the Hebron Block Party and Hebron Winterfest.
Railroads and stagecoaches have played a major role in Hebron’s development, a history which visitors can see honored at the Stagecoach Inn and Panhandle Depot museum. View community artifacts, railroad memorabilia, and an exhibit dedicated to military service. Afterward, make a stop at Goodbyes Second Hand Shop, an antique and secondhand shop that ensures a unique vintage find.
