Lincoln Day Trip



The village of Lincoln began with its settlement in 1885. Lincoln Lake was then used to transport lumber to a nearby train depot for the Detroit and Mackinac Railroad. In 1908 meetings were held to create a community with dock structures, a park, camping, picnics and installing sidewalks and creating a business district. Throughout the years Lincoln has continued to grow into a tight knit community with a thriving local industry, restaurants, banks, schools and year round recreation including cross-county skiing, snowmobiling, hunting and fishing.

Do you love railroads and trains? Be sure to visit the last remaining train depot of its kind in Northeast Michigan. The Lincoln Depot has been standing since 1886 and served the community until 1929. The Lincoln Depot was officially recognized as a Michigan Historic Site.
