Hima is a Clay county community just south of Manchester on Horse Creek. The community was probably originally known as Crawfish and the source of the name Hima is not known, although it may have come from the railroad. 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 opened in 1907 and was renamed Hima in 1920.
