The city was founded in 1856 as the village of Lancaster. After the county was incorporated in 1859, the city was quickly chosen as the county seat and it began to grow. The city was named the capital in 1857 due to Kansas\’s potential annexation of the state north of the Platte River, and was renamed “Lincoln” to honor the new president. Throughout the 20th century, the city has seen an increase in the manufacturing and textile industries, and was named “Healthiest City” in 2008.
