Located near the convergence of the Choccolocco Creek, the Blue Eye
Creek, and the Coosa River, whose Native American names pay tribute
to the Muskogee who once populated the town, Lincoln attracted
early settlers after the Cusseta Treaty was signed with the Creek
Indians on March 24, 1832. Andrew Jackson passed through Lincoln on
his way to the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, when the town was still
known as Kingsville and before it was renamed in 1856 for a famous
soldier who fought in the War of Independence. Though Lincoln
suffered during the Depression -- closing its two banks and many
usinesses -- it has recovered to become the eighth-fastest growing
city in Alabama.
