The town of Lincoln, Massachusetts has a rich history. From its days as a Precinct of Concord to its leadership in land conservation, Lincoln has generated stories that must be kept and told to future generations. As a crossroads on April 19, 1775, as the home of Bauhaus and other modern architecture, as a community that has fostered authors from Thoreau to Jane Langton, as a rural farming village turned suburban commuter town, Lincoln stands among the premier places in the panorama of American life.
