Approaching Hebron From the Air and the Water
...can you picture the houses that used to be here?
Hebron, founded in 1831 by Moravian missionaries, was the most northerly of the Moravian trading villages in Labrador. The Hebron station was disbanded in 1959, and the 58 Inuit families living there were relocated to communities further south along the Labrador coast. Today, Inuit are returning to Hebron during the summer to reconstruct the Mission station building and to welcome visitors to this historic place. Thank you to Muriel Edmunds for being on the good side of the plane and in the right place in the boat for your photos!
