Hinsdale is 9 miles east of Pittsfield, 42 miles northwest of Springfield, and 120 miles west of Boston. Hinsdale is located in the Berkshire Hills, with most of its population located in a valley along the East Branch of the Housatonic River, whose origin is just south of the town line.
According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 21.7 square miles and a population of 1,872, 98% white. The median income for a household is $42,500 and the per capita income for the town is $19,797.
Originally part of Northern Berkshire Township Number 2 and including all of Peru and part of Middlefield, the town was first settled in 1763 and was officially incorporated as Partridgefield in 1771, later renamed for the family of Rev. Theodore Hinsdale, who also owned an important woolen mill. The mill was the center of economic activity in town until the Great Depression, when it closed.

Hinsdale, along with neighboring Dalton, is home to two historic long-distance routes: the Appalachian Trail (a National Scenic Trail) and the Boston and Albany Railroad. It was also a stop on the famed the Lake Shore Limited passenger rail service that has run continuously from Boston to Chicago since 1897, however the station was closed in the 1930s shortly after the closing of the mill. The Hinsdale train depot located in the town center was closed in 1954, and the actual intersection of the two corridors lies at the also decommissioned train depot just north in Dalton.
The Town of Hinsdale is a small, quiet hill town, whose population increases tremendously in the summer months due to the influx of people from more urban areas. Hinsdale offers an extensive recreation program for its youth, and a community center and activities for its senior citizens. It is a beautiful, rural community, in which its residents take great pride.
