The Town of Lincoln

On January 1st 1970, Beamsville, Clinton Township and parts of Louth Township were brought together under the municipal corporation now known as the “Town of Lincoln”.  The town required one governing body, not three different ones, with the first Mayor, Delby Bucknall coming from Clinton Township, the first municipal representative, Fred McKenzie coming from Louth Township and aldermen from Beamsville, Clinton and Louth. The name “Lincoln” was chosen by a vote of the citizens.
