Hamilton is an unincorporated community in Olive Township, St. Joseph County, Indiana.


Hamilton was originally called Terre Coupee, and under the latter name was platted in 1837.[2] The name of Hamilton comes from Hamilton's Tavern the community once contained.[2] A post office opened under the name Terre Coupee in 1831, and remained in operation until 1893.[3]
