Nestled in northern Sussex County, Delaware, Lincoln, originally known as Lincoln City, is an unincorporated community with a rich history dating back to the 19th century. It is part of the Salisbury, Maryland-Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area and holds a unique place in the region's heritage.
Lincoln City was established in 1865 with ambitious plans to become the county seat of Sussex County. The town's visionary planner, Colonel Abel Stokes Small of New York, laid the foundation for what he hoped would become the "future metropolis of southern Delaware." Although it never officially achieved city status, Lincoln was carefully planned, with streets laid out and businesses and residences emerging to surround the current Delmarva Central Railroad line.
In its history, Lincoln served as the headquarters for the Delaware Coast Line Railroad, further enhancing its significance in the region's transportation and economic development.
In recent years, there has been a growing movement to incorporate Lincoln, driven by two primary factors. First, the city of Milford is rapidly expanding toward Lincoln, raising concerns about potential envelopment of the town. Second, the Delaware Department of Transportation is in the process of developing a Milford By-Pass for U.S. Route 113, which could divide the small Lincoln community, potentially affecting residents' connectivity and even leading to the removal of homes, businesses, and at least one of the two schools in the area.

We understand the importance of safeguarding the rights and well-being of our fellow residents.
