Kyle Nelson, recent RHAM graduate, opted to do his Eagle Project for the Hebron Historical Society at Old Town Hall. As you can see in the photos, he assumed the responsibility for an enormous project. He chose to have the threshold replaced, to prep and paint two sides of Old Town Hall, and to clean out and replace the plantings in front of OTH. There was lots of work to be shared by many of the Troop 28 Boy Scouts.

Since our Capital Campaign was to both replace the roof and paint the OTH, Kyle's project will allow the Historical Society time to raise more money before completing the paint portion of OTH.

Our many thanks to Kyle and all who worked on the project.

In October 2008, the Peters House Reuse Study Committee submitted a report to the Hebron Board of Selectmen regarding potential uses of the house.  The document was scanned to include Ray Overton's detailed architectural diagrams in December 2008.  Read it now 6MB.

The History of the Burrows Hill Schoolhouse and Hebron's Efforts to Maintain its Historical Heritage

On the corner of School House Road lies a small red one room building.  Inside, in the front of the room, stood a teacher’s desk, on which was placed a few old pencils.  The blackboard was, amazingly, still intact.  On the floor, near the doorway, was a bright red piece of wood which was used to cover the “tobacco hole,” the place where colonial students disposed their tobacco before coming to class.  These are the descriptions of the Burrows Hill Schoolhouse from a 1993 article, “It was moving day for Burrows Hill School” written in The Chronicle.
