A municipal corporation created by the Legislature of the Province of Ontario through the amalgamation of the Town of Beamsville with the Township of Clinton, and half of the Township of Louth, the Town of Lincoln officially came into existence on January 1, 1970. As of 2006, the Town of Lincoln has a population of 21,722, with its administrative and commercial center situated in the nearby community of Beamsville.
Surrounded by acres upon acres of vineyards and orchards, Lincoln remains a quaint country locale, still within an easy drive from either Toronto or Buffalo. Positioned along the Queen Elizabeth Way in the Niagara Region, Lincoln is perfectly situated within the major populated areas of central Canada and near the eastern United States. Its small towns and villages, filled with wineries, antique shops, historical sites and natural attractions, make Lincoln a unique place to live, work, and call home.
The dominant feature of Lincoln is the Niagara Escarpment, an awe inspiring geological feature, dividing the Town into two areas. Below the escarpment, the land is fit for a wide range of uses with gentle rolling land and well-drained soils providing a number of excellent areas for tender fruit and wines. Above the escarpment, the land is predominantly used for a variety of agricultural purposes and provides picturesque beauty.
With a moderate climate, mild winters and rich, fertile soils, it’s no wonder why Lincoln’s economy receives a large push from the variety of agricultural operations in the area. The area is known across Canada for its orchards, vineyards, wineries as well as the restaurants that feature local produce and wines. There is also an abundance of fruit crops grown in Lincoln such as: cherries, peaches, apples and pears.
