Formed in 1780 Lincoln County is one of Kentucky's three original territories.
Named in honor of
Army Officer Benjamin Lincoln
who was asked by Congress to
conduct the war in the southern states.
The original territory
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."
It's home of Kentucky's
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.
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by
transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use
of all researchers.
