General view c 1915

In 1764, Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth granted 32,456 acres 13134 km2 to a group of approximately 70 land investors from Connecticut Lincoln was named after Henry Fiennes Pelham-Clinton, 2nd Duke of Newcastle, 9th Earl of Lincoln – a cousin of the Wentworth governors He held the position of comptroller of customs for the port of London under George II and George III, which was important to trade between America and England2

The town was settled about 1782 The 1790 census indicates that it had 22 inhabitants Rocky soil yielded poor farming, but the area's abundant timber, combined with water power to run sawmills on the Pemigewasset River and its East Branch, helped Lincoln develop into a center for logging By 1853, the Merrimack River Lumber Company was operating The railroad transported freight, and increasingly brought tourists to the beautiful mountain region In 1892, James E Henry bought approximately 100,000 acres 400 km2 of virgin timber and established a logging enterprise at what is today the center of Lincoln In 1902, he built a pulp and paper mill He erected The Lincoln House hotel in 1903, although a 1907 fire would nearly raze the community Until he died in 1912, Henry controlled his company town, installing relatives in positions of civic authority3

In 1917, Henry's heirs sold the business to the Parker Young Company, which in turn sold it to the Marcalus Manufacturing Company in 1946 Franconia Paper took over in 1950, producing 150 tons of paper a day until bankruptcy in 1971, at which time new river classification standards discouraged further papermaking in Lincoln3

Tourism is today the principal business Nearby Loon Mountain has long drawn skiers, and in recent years has attempted to convert itself into a four-season attraction The Flume is one of the most visited attractions in the state Discovered in 1808, it is a natural canyon extending 800 feet 240 m at the base of Mount Liberty Walls of Conway granite rise to a height of 70 to 90 feet 21 to 27 m and are only 12 to 20 feet 25 to 60 m apart
