Crest Knoll was the first large subdivision added in Hebron after World War II. Appearing in 1957, it covered 22 acres on the northwest corner of town. A short time afterwards, Fairlane Subdivision was added on the southwest side of town. During the 1970’s, Ganz Subdivision took over the development of the Frame Subdivision on the west side. Park Place, the largest housing development Hebron had ever seen, began shortly after that. Located on Hebron’s northwest side, Park Place provides housing for several hundred residents in the form of single-family dwellings and apartments.
