Lincoln County is a place where things are still made. Where skilled workers know how to use their hands as well as their heads. Where business, industry and distribution exist comfortably side by side with quality, small-town, country and lakeside living. Where traffic doesn’t roar by, but interstates are just down the road. Where big city amenities are nearby, but urban sprawl doesn’t yet intrude. The county is rapidly being recognized as a manufacturing and distribution hub with a growing automotive sector and has benefited from domestic and international investment.
