Historical Facts About Lincoln

  • In 1859, settlers near the salt basin in the southeast part of the territory organized Lancaster County. They platted a town named "Lancaster" on the east bank of Salt Creek and named it the county seat.
  • A small commission chose Lancaster as the location for the state's capital because of its "mineral wealth," but there were disagreements over where the capital should be in relation to the river.
  • A legislator from north of the Platte suggested "Lincoln" as the name of the new capital city, knowing that many south-Platters were political opponents of the Great Emancipator. The idea was furthered by a key anti-Lincolnite, so the site and the name were settled.
