History[edit]

Hebron appeared on the Rand McNally state map of Iowa in 1903.

Founded in the 1800s, Hebron was named after the ancient city of Hebron.[2] Hebron is located in the southeastern part of Grand River Township, near the Grand River.[3]

The Hebron Creamery operated in the community circa 1904.[4] Other businesses included a general store, a barber shop, an ice house, a saw mill, and a blacksmith shop. A school, a post office, and the Hebron Methodist Church also operated in the community.[5] The church is still in operation.[6]

Hebron's population was 106 in 1902,[7] and 66 in 1925.[8]
