Lincoln County was founded in 1760 from a portion of York County, Massachusetts and named after the English city Lincoln. At its founding, Lincoln County accounted for three-fifths of the state's land, and stretched east to Nova Scotia. Thirteen counties were cut out of this land including Sagadahoc County to the west. The county flag is a traditional New England flag, adopted in 1977. The county seat is Wiscasset. Wikipedia
