 Previous Station:  Latham
 Next Station:  Warrensburg
 Description:  Formerly known as Bullardsville after Warner Bullard, the name was changed to Heman after the IC took over the PD&E.  Heman's reason-to-be has always seemed to been related to agriculture.  While there isn't so much as a switch in Heman today, there are still plenty of chickens, roosters and goats.  No spur or siding was shown in the 1978 track chart.
