Hinckley and his wife, Harriet, and daughter Alice moved to Maine in 1883. The next year, he began a fund to raise money for the home.

In 1888, Hinckley published the "Boy's Fund" newsletter to increase his fund-raising.

The next year, he bought a 125-acre farm in Fairfield for $2,000 and the Good Will Farm was on its way.
