This view of Main Street in Lincoln looking south shows some of the stately old buildings that once adorned Main Street. Note the majestic Elm trees that lined the street, shading the houses. On the left, the first building is the Lincoln House gas station on the corner lot of Main and Burton St., next is the Masonic Hall where the Town Offices are now located.

The beautiful building on the right was the Litton House. The next building is Gateway Motors which is now Cole Whitney. The next is the home of a dentist, Dr. Charles Fuller. This house was occupied by an African American troop detachment sent here to guard the railroad bridges in Lincoln, Mattawamkeag and Passadumkeag during World War II.
