Archives

2002.001.1.2.46 Lincoln Center 1904 001 The town of Lincoln, Massachusetts has a rich history. From its days as a Precinct of Concord to its leadership in land conservation, Lincoln has generated stories that must be kept and told to future generations. As a crossroads on April 19, 1775, as the home of Bauhaus and other modern architecture, as a community that has fostered authors from Thoreau to Jane Langton, as a rural farming village turned suburban commuter town, Lincoln stands among the premier places in the panorama of American life.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Lincoln Town Archives is to collect, preserve, and provide access to the history and culture of the town of Lincoln, Massachusetts.  Collections include municipal records, manuscripts, books, photographs, audio-visual materials, and other ephemera documenting the history of Lincoln from 1746 to the present.

About the Archives

The Lincoln Town Archives is a unique partnership between the Lincoln Library and the Office of the Town Clerk, governed pursuant to a Memorandum of Understanding between the two entities and endorsed by Town Meeting in 2008. The collaboration has enabled an integration of the town’s historic cultural, private and public documents into a single inventoried collection, housed at both Town Hall and the Library. Management responsibilities for the Town Archives are shared by Library Director, Barbara Myles, and Town Clerk, Susan F. Brooks. Archivist Marie Wasnock, on board since 2008, splits her time between the two sites.
