The plat for our community was filed by founders Rev. R.C. Heckman and Samuel Egger and was intended to be named Heckman. However, in the recording procedures, the spelling was recorded as "Hickman" and it has remained so.
The yearly town celebration, Hickman Hayday, continues a long tradition, which occurs the last Saturday of July. The South Lancaster County Fair was held in the Hickman Park in 1894 and a yearly celebration of some type has been held since the first Old Settlers Picnic in 1899.
Hickman's Infrastructure has been maintained and improved over the years with current improvements to the WasteWater Treatment plant in 1998 and currently in 2007, Sewage Line Improvements in 2001, and Water Main Replacement and Downtown Street Resurfacing in 2003. Multiple diverse Housing Developments, along with quality of life enhancements have made Hickman a pleasant blend of the old and the new.
