Long Description:
Mt. Hebron United Methodist Church
This congregation, organized ca. 1800 in the home of Martin Hook, built its first house of worship at the Half Way Ground, near here. In 1837 a new church was erected at this site on land donated by John and Elizabeth Roof. Another structure was built here in 1907 and was replaced in 1963 by the present sanctuary.


Temperance Hall
The frame building behind the church was built 1862 by Saludaville Sons of Temperance, a society charted in 1858 that reflected the nationwide movement to combat intemperate use of alcohol. In 1871 the society was recharted as Mt. Hebron Sons of Temperance and probably continued until the State Dispensary was established 1893. The building was restored in 1979.

1982 by Congregation of Mt. Hebron United Methodist Church (Mt. Hebron Church Side); Pineview Ruritan Club (Temperance Hall Side). (Marker Number 32-15.)
