World's (2nd?) Largest Porch Swing

The porch swing is still there, in a lovely shaded park area. They have now built a gazebo over it.

Largest Porch Swing

It was nice to visit and walk around the park. There was an older gentleman dressed in a suit handing out buttons with the swing pictured on it.

World's Longest Porch Swing

As described, the World's Longest Porch Swing is indeed long. On the day we visited, there were a couple of toddlers playing in the local park under shade trees. Nice quiet place.

We needed the panoramic feature on our camera to get the whole thing in and still recognize the people as something other than ants. Sturdy.

Just follow the signs - Hebron's not that big. Once in town, there are directional signs pointing the way towards different things.

World's Largest Porch Swing

Its a huge long porch swing in a park -- seats 25.

[Anon., 08/18/2002]

Hebron promotes the porch swing as able to support 16 adults or 24 children. It's not on a porch, if it ever was -- it's in a park, supported by a field irrigator pipe in a swing set-style framework.
