Washington County, Utah: Ghost Town Cemetery

With 100 residents at its peak, Hebron's water scarcity triggered a gradual shift east of farming families to Enterprise, a newer town. The 1902 earthquake finished off Hebron. Remaining: vague rubble and an old cemetery.

Hebron Cemetery.

Ghost Town Cemetery

In 1902, an approximate 6 magnitude earthquake destroyed most of the town of Hebron, so the residents salvaged the building materials and moved down the road to Enterprise. The Old Hebron Cemetery is now maintained by the Enterprise Boy Scout Troop.
