The Lincoln Methodist Church was built in 1839. The town clock is in the vestry of the church and was a gift from Isaac Burton. The clock first struck on Nov. 16, 1878, and it was run by granite counterweights and had to be wound every week. The clock was electrified in the 1960s.

The presence of the Lincoln Theatre (at right), built in 1923 to replace the Odd Fellows Hall after it burned in 1922, suggests that this photo was taken around 1925.
