 Hinton - Photo Collection #1 

Hinton is the county seat of Summers County. When the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway (C&O) built its rail line through the region in the 1870s, Hinton was established as a major terminal point on the railroad. Circa 1905, Hinton had a population of nearly 6,000 people, a well-equipped hospital, three flourishing banks, a new and magnificent hotel, a foundry and machine shop, two grain mills, several wholesale concerns, numerous retail stores, two newspapers, a planning-mill and the large repair shops of the C&O that employed hundreds of workers.
