Hebron is a town in Boone Township.  It is located in Porter County, Indiana.  The population was 3,855 at the 2011 census.

 

The first settler to Hebron was Judge Jesse Johnson.  The area of Hebron was an open prairie interspersed with small groves of trees.  The prairie was about 2.5 miles long by 0.75 miles wide.   About 0.5 miles south was the Potawatomi village of Hauakiki.  Locally, the village was called "Indian Town."

 

 The area chosen for settlement was referred to as "The Corners" as this was where two roads crossed, which is the modern Indiana State Road 8 and U.S. 231.  The first homes were made of logs.  In 1849, Mr. McCune built the "Tavern" as the first frame structure.

 

The tavern continued in use as a tavern until 1936.  In 1838, a Rev. Hannan organized the Bethlehem Church of Associate Reform Presbyterians.  Later the church changed its name from "Bethlehem" to "Hebron."

 

In 1845, Rev. Blain of the Hebron Church of Associate Reform Presbyterians petitioned for a post office named after his church.  The post office was established that year and the town got its name.

 

In 1849, 1852, 1855, and 1864 lots were laid out to the south and west of the "The Corners."   It took the construction of the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, and St. Louis Railroad in 1863 to open the town to growth.  Completed just to support the Union effort during the American Civil War, the railroad spurred growth after the war ended.  Hebron became a gateway to the rich hunting grounds of the Grand Kankakee Marsh.

 

 The community was granted status as a "Town" on March 5, 1890.  The advent of the draining of the Grand Kankakee Marsh in 1890 increased the traffic and the population of the entire area.  Another spurt of growth occurred from 1900-1912 when the Hebron Opera House was built.  By 1936, three passenger trains a day passed through Hebron headed for Chicago, making access to world markets possible.

    #1.  Get immediate medical care The extent of your  injuries or of others is very hard to diagnose at the time of your incident.  Serious injuries  may or may not result in immediate pain or discomfort. Call 911 or emergency  services after any serious accident or injury.

  • Do not make any conclusive statements

    #2.  At the time or your accident  or injury it is common try to  analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of  their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.

  • Cooperate with emergency authorities

    #3.  Cooperate with  medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information.  Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).

  • Contact an attorney to review your injury case

    #4.  Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney.  Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.

  • Be Patient - Follow medical care directives

    #5.  Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose. One painful  injury can mask a completely different and more serious injury.  If you experience any medical issues after your incident contact a medical professional immediately. Keep all incident and medical records for your attorney's review.
