Settled in1876 by Mormon pioneers, the town was first called Deseret #3, as part of the Deseret LDS Ward, then Bloomington, and finally Hinckley. The name was given in honor of Ira Hinckley, who was then the Millard Stake President.

 

During the settlement of Hinckley, rattlesnakes were a major problem. Through the hard work of the towns­people, it soon became a thriving community with rich farmland. Hinckley is the last town in Millard County before embarking on Highway 6&50 going west, which was named “America’s Loneliest Highway.”
