Where is Hinsdale, Massachusetts, USA? 

Hinsdale, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA
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. Named for Oliver Partridge, one of the three purchasers of the town (along with Governor Francis Bernard), the Western Parish officially broke away from its eastern half and incorporated in 1804, renaming itself 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.wikipedia
