Long Description:

On June 20, 1917, in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, Frederick Everett Hebert purchased a table, knife, thermometer, copper kettle, stove, and marble slab for $11. That original bill of sale is a prized possession of the Hebert family today, because it launched a New England Tradition - Hebert Candies.

For many years, Mr. Hebert manufactured his candies and sold them through small neighborhood stores throughout the Worcester, Massachusetts area. After World War II, in 1946, Mr. Hebert purchased a Tudor stone mansion on Route 20 in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. The building became the home of Hebert Candies and a landmark known as the Candy Mansion.

Browse through the store and enjoy the ice cream sundae bar. Watch candy being made in the "Geneva Room" as you enjoy delicious ice cream.
