Lincoln, Massachusetts

Lincoln is a town in the historic area of Middlesex County, Massachusetts. First settled by Europeans in 1654, as a part of Concord, Lincoln was split from Concord, and incorporated as a separate town in 1754. Chambers Russell, a representative of the Court of the King, in Boston, was influential in the town’s creation. In gratitude, Russell was asked to name the new town. He chose Lincoln, after his family home in Lincolnshire, England.

Paul Revere was captured by British soldiers in Lincoln on the night of April 18, 1775. Minutemen from Lincoln were the first to arrive to reinforce the colonists protecting American stores of ammunition and arms in Concord. Colonel Abijah Pierce of Lincoln led his troops, armed first with only a cane. He upgraded his weapon to a British musket after the battle. Several British soldiers who fell in Lincoln are buried in the town cemetery.
