 The [[towns|town]] of Hebron was founded in the mid-19th century, though the exact date is unknown. ​ During its early days it was variously known as Briar Thicket, Briar Patch or Tailholt -- all names whose origins are equally unknown. ​ The town grew up along the Tanner'​s Station-Newport Road, now known as the [[Petersburg]] Road or KY Route 20.  Like many other inland towns in the [[boone county|county]],​ Hebron was a quiet farming community and [[farming|agricultural]] trading center that served the surrounding area.  A post office was established on February 23, [[1858]], and the town took the name of Hebron in honor of the local [[Hebron Lutheran Church]] with which the town's early history is intertwined. The [[towns|town]] of Hebron was founded in the mid-19th century, though the exact date is unknown. ​ During its early days it was variously known as Briar Thicket, Briar Patch or Tailholt -- all names whose origins are equally unknown. ​ The town grew up along the Tanner'​s Station-Newport Road, now known as the [[Petersburg]] Road or KY Route 20.  Like many other inland towns in the [[boone county|county]],​ Hebron was a quiet farming community and [[farming|agricultural]] trading center that served the surrounding area.  A post office was established on February 23, [[1858]], and the town took the name of Hebron in honor of the local [[Hebron Lutheran Church]] with which the town's early history is intertwined.

 Hebron remained a small farming community until the 1940s. ​ The development of a new [[Cincinnati/​Northern Kentucky International Airport|Cincinnati airfield]] on high, level land east of the town led to the removal of [[historic homes|houses]] and farms to make room for runways. ​ In the years following [[World War II]] many people seeking suburban lifestyles, built homes in and around Hebron. Hebron remained a small farming community until the 1940s. ​ The development of a new [[Cincinnati/​Northern Kentucky International Airport|Cincinnati airfield]] on high, level land east of the town led to the removal of [[historic homes|houses]] and farms to make room for runways. ​ In the years following [[World War II]] many people seeking suburban lifestyles, built homes in and around Hebron.
