Worlds Largest Porch Swing Getting a Porch

The Worlds Largest Porch Swing in Hebron is about to get a real porch.

The swing, located at Roosevelt Park on the northeast edge of downtown Hebron, is a part of a major facelift planned for the park.

People have been saying, since its a porch swingwhere is the porch? We want to make it more reflective of a real porch swing, said Kurk Wiedel, a member of the Hebron Revitalization committee and Hebron city councilman. The Revitalization Committee has selected Roosevelt Park as a starting point for community projects.

We want Hebron to become a destination point, and Roosevelt Park and the swing are a great attraction for us, said Lori Werner, another member of the committee. Our hope is to involve the citizens of Hebron in the planning and revitalization of Hebrons business districts and entrances into Hebron.
