Main Street Lincoln is celebrating
Preservation Month. "Sustain America -- Vision, Economics and
Preservation" was chosen for this year's slogan. Seth
Goodman, an LCHS senior and National Honor Society member completing
community service hours, planned the activities to promote the
Local high school students were given "Historic Travel" brochures
highlighting historical places in Lincoln. The walking tour led
students to several unique structures and places in the community
for a firsthand glimpse into local history.
The week also included
several high school students walking the historic route on a cleanup
day, aiding in the beautification of their community.
Photos on display in the storefronts of Action Rentals and Logan
County Title Company represent "Heritage Education." The photos
provide a glimpse of some of the old buildings and places that can
be found throughout Lincoln.

"The Diversity of Preservation" highlights the Kickapoo Indians,
who once resided on the grounds now known as Chautauqua Commons. The
Kickapoo Indians represent a segment of our diverse heritage.
Today, visitors to Memorial Park, located west of Lincoln, off
Fifth Street, will find a few replicas of what the small tents
looked like in 1790.
