Lincoln was founded in 1754, when colonists in Concord and parts of Lexington and Weston joined together to form a new town. Judge Chambers Russell, Concord's representative to the General Court, christened the town Lincoln after his beloved family home of Lincolnshire, England. Shown in this pictorial of more than two hundred never-before-published photographs culled from historic archives and family collections, Lincoln evolves from its early days as a thriving agricultural community, through gentrification into country estates owned by wealthy Bostonians, to its present status as a pioneer in open-space preservation and conservation. Lincoln is a treasure trove for longtime residents and visitors alike who want to experience a New England town restore, recycle, and reinvent itself.
