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 8,722 in 2016. During the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, this city was the first in the path of totality to view a partial solar eclipse.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.
