Our History: The Hinckley News began as the Pine Wood Dart in July of 1891. The name was changed to the Hinckley Enterprise in 1893 and to its current name in 1921.
Today's front page flag incorporates the Hinckley Fire Monument, which honors the 400-plus victims of the 1894 Great Hinckley Fire. "Hinckley was born of the forests, died in the forests, and was reborn in the ashes by the spirit of the pioneers."
Today the Hinckley News is owned by Franklin Newspapers Inc.
The Hinckley News is a family-owned publication published every Thursday in Hinckley, Minnesota.
