The sixth and seventh Ohio National Road Interpretive signs were unveiled on July 14, 2010.

Shown in the background are the Ohio National Road Display panels, which were set up in their lobby at the time of the unveiling.

The Hebron Interpretive sign was unveiled to everyone’s delight. The sign illustrates the village’s history as a transportation crossroad. Ground was broken for both the National Road and the Ohio & Erie Canal on July 4, 1825, and Hebron was the only location in which these two corridors of travel and commerce crossed.
The Hebron Mill Interpretive sign was unveiled by (left to right) ONRA Signage Committee Chair Mike Peppe, Hebron Village Administrator Mike McFarland, current mill building owner Luke Baus, and ONRA President Cyndie Gerken. Mr. Baus expressed appreciation on behalf of his company, Project Architecture/Project Construction which is housed in the old Hebron Mill building.
