Large town in the central regions of the Shire, within the borders of the Westfarthing. The town was overlooked by Hobbiton Hill (usually called simply 'The Hill'), in which was Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins, and later of his heir Frodo.
We have no specific reference to the founding of Hobbiton, but it is described as being one of the older settlements of the Shire. In principle, it might date back to the first years after the founding of the Shire itself.
