Hima is a Clay county community just south of Manchester on Horse Creek. The source of the name is not known. Hima was a station on the Horse Creek branch of the Cumberland and Manchester Railroad, later part of the Louisville and Nashville, that operated from about 1917 into the 1930s. A Crawfish post office may have opened in 1907, but by 1920 it was known as Hima.
