On December 9th, the Historical Society at Old Town Hall will be an active part of the Hebron Holiday Festival. Festivities will begin in Old Town Hall at 1:00, and will include craft projects for children, assisted by Historical Society members and friends.
In the tradition of Stew Stockwell’s annual seasonal model railroad event in Old Town Hall, you must stop in between 1:00-5:00 to see the model railroad display operated by the Connecticut Society of Ferroequinologists (Iron Horses). The Manchester-area club’s O-gauge layout will be running and there will be club members to answer any questions. Our older Hebron residents will recall Stew in his striped overalls and engineer’s cap controlling the trains as they toured his rural layout. To watch an old video of Stew and his model railroad, go to http://hebronhistoricalsociety.org, click on Hebron Historic & Program Videos, and scroll down to “Model Railroad Exhibit in OTH back in 1976”.
