Hinmansville, New York

Hinmansville is a hamlet in the Town of Granby in Oswego County, New York, upon the Oswego River. It is within the Phoenix Central School District.

Hinmansville was founded in 1827 by John E. Hinman. Among the first of the buildings constructed were a Church and a Schoolhouse, but they are no longer present.

Because of its location on the Oswego River, it became a popular stop-off point for boatmen who passed by. During its heyday as a boating town, Hinmansville bore the name "Horseshoe Rifts".

Hinmansville is not listed by the U.S. Census Bureau, but is incorporated as a postal hamlet.

The unofficially estimated number of current residents is somewhere around 150.
