The History of Lincoln CA
In 1857 Charles Lincoln Wilson was put in charge of the Sacramento Valley Railroad plan to connect Folsom's Negro Bar to what is now know as Marysville, CA. The land was owned by Theodore Judah of Folsom, who envisioned a new town. By November of 1859, funding for the tracks construction had halted and Judah sold the land now known as Lincoln to Charles L. Wilson for aprox $3800. Within weeks of his purchase, Charles Lincoln Wilson had mapped out a town site and sold 46 lots at a local auction. These new landowners would lay the foundations for the City of Lincoln.
The city of Lincoln didnt take off right away, and the home Charles built for his family burnt to the ground in 1859. Later veterans of war roamed west in search of farmland providing the next big economic wave. They planted orchards and grazed cattle, and by the late 1800's, the first of several fruit packing plants opened, offering a boom in employment.
Lincoln was once know as Auburn Ravine Station, but Charles's wife later told her husband that she hated the name, and suggest it be changed to Lincoln. He agreed an in 1859 the city was changed to Lincoln.
The land also drew J. Parker Whitney to the area and built Spring Valley Ranch, which is now the home of Lincoln’s Twelve Bridges master planned community. J Parker Whitney became the richest man in Placer County during the nineteenth century.
The discovery of coal added more jobs to the fledgling community. Though many locals had been aware of its existence for many years, several coal mines opened following the 1873, which kept the town rolling through the early parts of the 1900's.
