Lincoln City is a small town on the coast of Oregon on the Pacific Ocean. It got its name from Lincoln County, which was named after former president Abraham Lincoln. Approximately 8,000 people call Lincoln City home and enjoy a very wet yet mild climate year round.
Lincoln City’s Development & Modernization
Lincoln City was officially incorporated in 1965 in an effort to consolidate the small towns and unincorporated areas of Delake, Oceanlake, Taft, Cutler City, and Nelscott. U.S. Route 101 runs right through Lincoln City and has become its main street. Because residents thought simply choosing one of the town’s names would be controversial, they allowed local schoolchildren to submit their ideas for a new name. Obviously, Lincoln City was chosen.
Today, Lincoln City draws tourists from the inland parts of Oregon and Washington and is characterized by great seafood restaurants, small boutiques and shops, and all sorts of opportunities for beach activities. The historic DeLake School building now serves as the home of the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Some people refer to Lincoln City as the “kite flying capital of the world” due to its hosting of two annual kite festivals and competitions.
