The Balhinch area was originally settled by William Offield in February 1821, five miles southwest of Crawfordsville in Section 21 in an area with two streams — Sugar Creek and Offield's Creek. A monument to William Offield stands near Offield's Creek.
It was formally platted in the 1920s and the boundaries legally defined.
