If you are traveling on highway 97 between Weed and Doris California and are feeling a little parched or want a snack, take a right on East Ball Mountain Road and follow the signs to the Mt. Hebron General Store. In 2008 Lassen Canyon Nursery reopened the old Mt. Hebron General Store near Macdoel, California. The store had been in operation for years until the owner retired and closed it. We bought the store to benefit our employees since Macdoel is so remote. It is about 30 miles from anywhere with a supermarket.
So, Lassen bought the store and remodeled it (although in retrospect we probably should of blew it up and started over!) and now it operates as a small market and Laundromat catering to the field laborers that live in the Butte Valley seasonally, the locals and their families, and of course the hunters and fishermen who stop in to pick up a few things on their way to the wilderness. The store sells grocery items including some fresh fruits and vegetables, a wide variety of soft drinks, snacks, an impressive selection of imported and domestic beers and of course Prather Ranch beef.
Mt. Hebron store is located at 1934 Main Street, Macdoel, California.
