WELCOME TO THE
State Flower of Connecticut
My name is Linda Pingel and I am the host for the town of Hebron, Tolland County, Connecticut. This page is part of the US Gen Web Project. If you have any information to contribute for the town of Hebron, please contact me via e-mail. I live in Texas and, therefore, am unable to conduct any "on-site" research. If you need the services of a researcher, return to the Tolland County page; there is a list of researchers to contact on that site. All of the info on this site comes from my local library and from volunteers. I merely maintain the information on this web site. Thank you.
