Hebron is a former Inuit community in northern Labrador. The Hebron Mission, which dates back to 1831, is a National Historic Site. The Hebron Station officially closed in 1959, when the provincial government and the Moravian mission determined that supplying a remote location such as Hebron was not economical. The government store was shut down, which led to a mass relocation of Hebron residents to communities further south in Nunatsiavut. Much anguish and shock was felt by the residents of Hebron at this decision. The relocation is still considered a traumatic event for many that live in the various Nunatsiavut communities.
