The well-defined hamlet of Poolville is located in the south-central portion of the Hamilton. There is one operating farm in the hamlet as well as a community center owned by a private not-for-profit organization connected to a small volunteer fire department. Also in the hamlet are the Poolville Country Store, the Poolville Rural Cemetery, and an old railroad station. Most of the fifty or so homes in Poolville are in very good condition; there is little turnover among owners. 
On the outskirts of the hamlet are a gravel mine, some small farms, and a few recently-constructed houses. To the east, Poolville Lake Road leads to Poolville Pond, which is privately owned and occupied by homes and camps.
