Hebron has a new business in town; offering all the tackle and gear needed for a day of fishing. Merles Bait and Tackle, opened May 1, 2014 at 424 Lincoln Avenue as a new addition to the community; selling live bait, prepared bait, fishing tackle, and quite a few fishing poles.
I always tried to find something the town doesnt have. True Value Hardware has some fishing supplies, but we have a wide variety, said owner Merle Hartley. Hartley was raised in Hebron, and lived in Lincoln-where he supervised bank tellers, then moved back home to Hebron where hes lived for 15 years. He previously owned a Hebron auction house, but desired a less physically-demanding job.

(Last week, we shared the mystery behind the four uniquely-carved faces on the Thayer County Courthouse exterior. In this third and final segment, we take inside the courthouse.)
Until the interior of the Thayer County Courthouse in Hebron is seen in-person, it is staggering to even just imagine the massive 10,000 square feet of Vermont marble inside the prominent structure.
The 10,000 square feet of marble is actually the equivalent of about two basketball courts, recently-retired Thayer County Court Magistrate Donna Fink told the Hebron-Thayer County edition of the Fairbury Journal-News.
Fink, who enjoyed researching the grand, historic courthouse during her three decades of services at the courthouse (before retiring December 31, 2013,) pointed-out the additional features of the courthouse building.
