Native Americans had been settled near the St. Croix River since around 1854, following the settling of loggers into the area due to the large stand of white pine trees. The first sawmill was built in 1869, with the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroads soon following. Following the railroad, the lumbering industry boomed and for the next twenty years Hinckley was a prosperous town. On September 1st, 1894, following an exceptionally dry summer, the Great Fire devastated the entire area covering over 400 miles and six towns. This caused Hinckley to lose a lot of its farming land, but remains today as a tourist destination famous for the beautiful land and the Grand Casino. Currently the population is about 1,400 and growing with the prosperous job opportunities and the draw of the small town life.
