Welcome To Lincoln County Wisconsin

Permanent white settlement of this region did not begin until after the War of 1812, when the U.S. secured control of this region. Those early settlers were engaged in either fur trading or lumbering. Lincoln County was created by the Wisconsin Legislature in 1874 and celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 1999.  It had been part of Marathon County. In the beginning, it included most of Oneida and Vilas Counties, as well as parts of Langlade, Taylor, Price and Iron, and  was incorporated in 1881.
