Wikipedia recites this about Lincoln: Meriwether Lewis passed through the area on his return to St. Louis in 1806, following the famous "River of the Road to the Buffalo" created by Native Americans centuries before.[3] 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. Nearby wilderness areas continue to attract visitors and residents.

Lincoln is a delightful authentic Western town but, regretfully, today Lincoln is best known for being the home of the terrorist, Ted Kaczynski. Kaczynski had become known as the Unabomber who sent pressure-sensitive bombs inside mailed packages. The bombings resulted in three deaths and 23 wounded. Kaczynski was arrested on April 3, 1996 and is currently serving eight life sentences without the possibility of parole at FMC Butner Prison in North Carolina.

On January 20, 1954, a temperature of −70 °F (−57 °C) was recorded at Rogers Pass, 18 miles northeast of Lincoln on Highway 200 which is the coldest recorded temperature in the United States outside of Alaska.
