History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Organized in 1780, Lincoln County was not named for the later president (b. 1809), but for the American Revolutionary War general Benjamin Lincoln.

Lincoln was one of the original three counties formed out from Virginia's Kentucky County. (The other two were Fayette and Jefferson counties.) These three were separated from Virginia to create the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1792.

The county's original seat was at Harrodsburg, but this was removed to the newly formed Mercer County in 1785.
