Lincoln County Museum Of History

Lincoln County Museum Of History

As early as 1907, citizens of Lincoln County determined a need in the county for an historical society to acquire and preserve the artifactual history of the county and make plans for the propagation of this history for posterity. Local supporters explained that local preservation of historic relics, and development of a site to store and display these relics would add charm that was found in the New England states. They explained that the appeal of these states lies in their marking of “every spot where an event of any importance occurred.”
