The Town of Lincoln was founded as a town in 1754 and is located west of Boston in Middlesex County. Lincoln was once nicknamed “Niptown” because when the town first began it was made up of pieces of land nipped from neighboring towns.
There is much to see in this old-fashioned little town for instance the Drumlin Farm Nature Center and the DeCordova Museum & Sculpture Park as well as the Thoreau Institute among many others.
Residents note that Lincoln is a quiet pretty place to be weather its to visit a museum or take a stroll in the woods all year round.
