The builder of the Hinmann House is unknown but he was believed to be an immigrant stonemason trained in the traditional construction methods of Germany. The house with its two level porches is of the classical revival style. The land where the Hinmann House is located today was once the home to a blacksmith shop and log house built in 1845 by Peter Arnold. In July 1855, Peter Arnold, a blacksmith according to the 1850 census, and his wife Catrina sold Lot 76 to Heinrich Hinmann, another blacksmith, for $550.
