Lincoln is a census-designated place (CDP) in Lewis and Clark County, Montana, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 1,100.HistoryMeriwether Lewis passed through here on his return to St. Louis in 1806, following the famous “River of the Road to the Buffalo” created by Native Americans centuries before. Gold discoveries in the mid-1860s brought miners to a number of camps in the area and Lincoln was eventually created when nearby Lincoln Gulch was abandoned in favor of the town’s present location. Recreational, logging and mining activities along the Blackfoot River in the early 20th century made it a convenient commercial center.
