Postmark: July 7, 1907, Hebron, Indiana
Collection: Steven R. Shook
Remark: During the summer and fall of 1877, a major Christian revival meeting took place over eleven weeks in Hebron, which led to a considerable increase in the interest of religious observation in the town. The Christian Church in Hebron was formally organized under the direction of Reverend Lemuel Shortridge on September 16, 1877, at Sweeney's Hall.  The church seen here was constructed in 1878 at a cost of $1,100 under the direction of Reverend A. B. Maston. Reverend Maston later left the church and became a missionary in New Zealand. In the spring of 1910, the church was remodeled and enlarged at a cost of $7,000 under the pastorate of Reverend S. W. Brown.
