Lincoln, Massachusetts, USA - 1845 - LINCOLN. [Pop. 686. Inc. 1754.]
This town was chiefly taken from Concord, and it was named after a town in England, and not, as many suppose, in honor of General Lincoln, of the revolutionary army.
It is watered by Sudbury River, a source of the Concord, and by Sandy Pond, valuable for its fish.
One part of the town is very elevated, and the surface is rough and uneven, though in some places fertile.
Distance from Concord, 3 miles; from Boston, 16.
