Welcome to Lincoln, Massachusetts
Lincoln MA could be called the "best of both worlds." The town is situated in an ideal commuter location only 13 miles northwest of Boston with easy access to Route 128 businesses. But the town's historic character and bucolic landscapes have been carefully maintained.
What to Expect
It's a beautiful, quiet town with scenic vistas, many trees, and fascinating architecture, both old and new.
Lincoln has a green vibe. A committee has been set up by the Town Meeting to study the noise and air pollution created by leaf blowers, and the town offers residents a list of quieter, more environmentally friendly contractors.
Potential future construction at Hanscom Air Force Base, a portion of which is within city limits, and state redevelopment of Route 2, where residents have recently been upset by the number of trees that have been cut, are future challenges for the city.
