In April 1836, William White donate land for a church and cemetery. In December 1904, William T. Simmons and his wife R. A. sold adjoining land to the church adding to the cemetery. The oldest marked grave is for Hepsey Herring who died October 8, 1848. Medal of Honor recipient Alfred Lee McLaughlin is buried here along with veterans from the Civil War to the Vietnam War.

Hebron Cemetery was added to the Alabama Historic Cemetery Register on August 17, 2009.
