Hebron, Indiana is a small town with a rich history. Founded in 1841, the first houses were built with logs. The first frame structure was built by McCune and was known as the “Tavern”. The Stagecoach Inn is the city's historic museum and was built in 1849 as an inn for travelers passing through the area and for hunters and fishermen visiting the Kankakee River.
