Hingham is an unincorporated census-designated place located in the town of Lima, in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, United States, northeast of Adell and southeast of Waldo. It has a post office with ZIP code 53031. As of the 2010 census, its population was 886.


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.
