Lincoln City is a city in Lincoln County, Oregon, United States. It is named after the county, which was named in honor of former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. The population was 7,930 at the 2010 census.HistoryThe area where the downtown region now lies was historically home to land belonging to the Siletz Tribe.Lincoln City was incorporated on March 3, 1965, uniting the cities of Delake, Oceanlake and Taft, and the unincorporated communities of Cutler City and Nelscott. These were adjacent communities along U.S. Route 101, which serves as Lincoln City's main street. The name "Lincoln City" was chosen from contest entries submitted by local school children. The contest was held when it was determined that using one of the five communities' names would be too controversial.Former communitiesCutler CityCutler City was located on the east shore of Siletz Bay. The community was started by Mr. and Mrs. George Cutler. It is claimed they received the property from Chief Charles "Charley" DePoe of the Siletz tribe (part of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Siletz). Cutler City post office ran from 1930 until the formation of Lincoln City.
