History

According to Gustav W. Buchen in "Historic Sheboygan County", the community of Hingham was platted on Sept. 5, 1850, by Edward Hobart. The land was acquired from Mrs. David Giddings, who had bought it from the U S Government in 1846. A Hingham resident, Lemuel Tibbitts, who was a deputy county surveyor, did the platting. Streets on the original plat included Water, Center, Spring, South and Main Streets. The name "Hingham" was chosen after the town in Massachusetts.
