Hinton is a city in and the county seat of Summers County, West Virginia, United States. The population was 2,266 at the 2020 census. Hinton was established in 1873 and chartered in 1897. Hinton was named after John "Jack" Hinton, the original owner of the town site. Much of Hinton's downtown was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. In 1994, part of Paramount's film Lassie was shot in Hinton. In the 1990s, Hinton's downtown experienced economic decline after a hospital moved away and Interstate 64 bypassed the town. In 2007, Hinton native and business owner Ken Allman founded MountainPlex Properties, which since then has worked to preserve and revitalize the Hinton Historic District.
