Historyedit

First settled in 1765, Hebron was incorporated in 1792 from a portion of the extinct township of Cockermouth now Groton, combined with a portion of what was then called West Plymouth Most early settlers arrived from New England towns, with no known first generation emigrants from Europe The surface was rough, the soil rather stubborn; nevertheless, farming was the primary occupation Other industries developed after the Mayhew Turnpike was built in 1803, connecting northern towns and lumber harvesting with southern cities and mills2 In 1859 the population was 565, when Hebron contained one store and a tannery3 By the 1920s, tourism developed into a major occupation, including summer lodges and winter skiing4
