A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Lincoln, South Dakota
Welcome to Lincoln ...
Although we found mention of Lincoln during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Lincoln was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Lincoln was located in Clay County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Lincoln to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Lincoln - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Lincoln, please Contact Us.
When the people of Lincoln refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Lincolnite<2>
From the 2010 Census (the most recent Census number we have), Lincoln had a population of 30 people.<3> (see below for details).
