History

Lincoln County dates its "beginning" from the Land Run of September 22, 1891, which opened to public settlement three Indian reservations adjoining the former Unassigned Lands on the east, and was named in honor of Abraham Lincoln. See a brief history of the county and biography of George Chandler, for whom the county seat was named, for more information.

Chandler, the county seat, is on old Route 66 and nearly midway between Tulsa to the East, and Oklahoma City, to the West.
