Hebron located at the end of Boscawen Street near the offices to the Winchester Star.
From the famous to the also very interesting not so famous people who are laid to rest at Mt. Hebron – you will gain a true perspective of local and regional history. Did you know that General Patton’s grandfather and great uncle are buried at Mt. Hebron. And of course – Daniel Morgan.
Interested in horticulture and trees? There is quite a collection at Mt. Hebron.
The Rouss Mausoleum will be open. Few have seen the interior of this structure and will discover a beautiful Tiffany window there – really remarkable!
