Lincoln exemplifies the true meaning of community. The town of Lincoln has a strong sense of heritage in agriculture, land preservation and historical significance, having been settled long before the American Revolution. The area that Lincoln currently claims was originally settled in 1654 by Europeans, but incorporated as a separate town a hundred years later in 1754 due to a petition from residents. The newly formed Lincoln was comprised of pieces of nearbyConcord, Weston and Lexington.
Chambers Russell, an influential legislator who played a crucial role in the town’s creation was asked by residents to name the new ton. He chose Lincoln, after his birth place in Lincolnshire, England. His home, Lincoln’s Codman House, still stands to this day.
The town’s population is approximately 6,300, including residents of the Hanscom Air Force Base, which is located within town limits.
Education for grades K-8 is provided by the town of Lincoln in the Lincoln Public Schools. Grades 9-12 are serviced at the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School and Minuteman School of Applied Arts and Sciences. Lincoln’s neighboring communities include Lexington, Waltham, Sudbury and Concord.
Bernis Hall, The Food Project, Codman House, DeCordova Museum, Sculpture Park, Gropius House, Lincoln Center Historic District, Hanscom Air Force Base and Hanscom Field all compliment Lincoln and make it the special place to live that is is today and always has been.
Lincoln real estate is primarily made up of single family homes. The market has a small, but notable portfolio of luxury real estate available for sale.
