One of the earliest Wentworth grants in this area of the state, named for the first Town Clerk, Abel Hine. It was nearly twenty years before significant settlement took place; in 1785, the first child born in the town was named for it (Hine Meacham). One of the largest woolen mills in the area made cashmeres, flannel and stocking yarn here in the 1880’s.

As the county’s population has grown and spread out from Burlington, Hinesburg has experienced a significant growth spurt over the past twenty-odd years (condos, housing developments and associated businesses). Despite this, the town retains its primarily agricultural character.
