Welcome to Lincoln
Affluent country heritage and character.
Known for its stunning estate homes and agricultural charm, Lincoln is a one-of-a-kind gem. Located approximately 25 miles northwest of Boston, this community feels set away from it all. It’s no wonder so many people choose to call this town — with its undisturbed country roads and gorgeous natural scenery — home.
Although it’s set in the countryside, Lincoln is also home to historic landmarks and fantastic cultural and educational destinations. Inside town limits, you’ll find places such as Minute Man National Historical Park (where you can experience what it was like to be at the opening battle of the Revolution), deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, and Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm.
Between farmhouse-style architecture and grand manors, you’ll have no trouble finding a house that suits your every need and desire. Homes in this area offer added privacy, peace, and quiet. If you’re planning on buying property in the area, you can expect to spend somewhere around $1.15 million.

People & Lifestyle
Lincoln is best described as tranquil, majestic, and bucolic. Even though it’s a short 30+ minute drive to the city center of Boston, you would never know it. Many area roads are narrow and residential since very little traffic ever passes through. The town makes for a wonderful escape from the busyness of city life.
Because of these characteristics, Lincoln is a wonderful place for commuters or those who prefer full-time living in the countryside. It is also a fantastic spot for those who enjoy learning about early American history since it is so close to significant historic landmarks.
