Welcome to the Lincoln, Vermont Historical Society

The Lincoln Historical Society (LHS) is dedicated to preserving the history of the Town of Lincoln, Vermont, which includes the communities of Downingsville, West Lincoln and South Lincoln. The LHS operates a museum located in a restored 19th-century farmhouse and barn in Lincoln Center. The house and barn are furnished with a growing collection of objects, documents and images that tell the stories of our town and its people.

We are closed for the Season, but we will be busy making necessary repairs to the Museum, cataloging our collection, and providing research to better serve you in the Spring.

  • The shingle roof on our Museum house is over 30 years old, so we need a replacement.

  • The windows in the Museum need reconstruction and repair including repair of any damaged sashes and frames, sills, and missing glazing.

  • The exterior trim of the Museum is need of repair and painting, starting with the North wall. 

  • We continue to accession new materials into our collection and catalog items in our Museum catalog using PastPerfect software.
