Lincoln history:

Here is a history page for Lincoln.

First settled in 1851, most people were farmers, but the town really began when the railroad determined the town itself. Lincoln was named for Charles Lincoln Wilson who was mainly responsible for bringing the railroad to the area. It ran from Folsom to Roseville Junction and then to Lincoln in 1861. The California Central Railroad ran out of funds so the line never went any further. More history information may be found at the above history site.

Lincoln is known as Zebratown. Though the local high school mascot is the Zebra, no one really knows how the nickname was chosen. The name appears on varous businesses and signs in town.
The incorporation date of Lincoln: 18 August 1890
