Hebron history:

A fort was built near what is now Hebron. It was named Fort Butler, after the state's first governor. A group of people called the Union Colony arrived in the area in 1869. They finally platted a town which did not develop. then, another man, Ed Past, organized another town on the north of the river. The people of the colony called it their city of refuge. A minister, Ives Marks, settled on the name of Hebron from the Bible for the new town. Soon stores, hotels and even a newspaper started up. Hebron was named the county seat for the newly created Thayer County in 1871 and has remained such. Premium Mills was built in 1873 and was important in the building up of the town. The railroad came to town in the early 1880s. With the arrival, more growth occurred. A bad tornado came through in 1953 and destroyed most buildings in town. People were resilient, though, and rebuilt most buildings within a year's time.
