Formed in 1780 Lincoln County is one
of Kentucky's three original territories.
Named in honor of Revolutionary Army Officer Benjamin Lincoln who was asked by Congress to conduct the war in the southern states.
The original territory of Lincoln comprised about one-third of the state but was reduced by cutting off sections to form other counties until its present area of 450 square miles.
Lincoln County is "The Land of Firsts.": home of Kentucky's first governor, Isaac Shelby; First chartered school in the state; first brick house in Kentucky; first courthouse west of the Alleghenies; first bank west of the Alleghenies; as well as America's first circular race track.
