Since its inception, Lincoln has witnessed three distinct periods of growth that can still be seen in the architecture throughout the city. The magnificent architecture found in the city’s downtown district dates back to the 1860s, when the community became a stop on the California Central Railroad. Shortly after, the discovery of rich clay deposits in the 1870s ushered in a new era of growth and prosperity, giving rise to the unique pottery the city is known for. During this time, many single-family homes in Lincoln were built in the ranch and craftsman styles in the northeastern part of the city.
More recently, this city has been recognized as one of the fastest growing cities in the country with an explosive growth rate of almost 300%. With this growth, a number of new, upscale and perfectly manicured communities have sprung up, with many of these neighborhoods featuring clubhouse-style facilities with a variety of conveniences and amenities rarely found in comparable developments in other cities. Newer homes in Lincoln are spacious, upscale properties that represent unparalleled value in Placer County.
Part of the credit to Lincoln’s exceptional community-oriented lifestyle it fosters can be accredited to the National Civic League’s All-America City Award, which the city won in 2006. This highly sought-after and respected award encourages and recognizes civic excellence. This designation has motivated all members of the community, from its residents to its government officials and business plus non-profit organizations to strive for ongoing excellence and sustainable growth, to create a high standard of living for its residents.
Local shops, restaurants, services, parks, recreation and schools all play a large role in the desirable community lifestyle that draws in so many homebuyers to purchasing real estate in Lincoln.
