Pimento has one listing on the National Register of Historic Places, the Linton Township High School and Community Building.


Formerly known as Hartford, Pimento was laid out in 1852 by Israel French. The name was changed to Pimento when it became a railroad station on the Evansville & Terre Haute Railroad. Thomas French made the first location in the place and put up a store. The next year came Harvey Weeks, who became a partner in the store. N. B. Bennett began a drug store in 1865, and then a grocery store. A large flour mill was built in 1877, and a tavern, large dry goods store and blacksmith shop soon followed. A town-house was erected in 1858 and the lower part used as a school house.[3]
