Located in Placer County, Lincoln is a city within the Sacramento metropolitan area. Lincoln has had a growth rate of 282.1 percent since the 2000 census because of the rapid suburban expansion north of Sacramento, making it the fastest growing city in the United States. The population was 11,205 in 2000 and was 42,819 at the 2010 census.
The town’s original site was laid out in 1859 and also contained the perspective line for the California Central Railroad and was named after Charles Lincoln Wilson, one of the organizers of the railroad. Lincoln’s early population boom came about when the California Central Railroad operations were halted due to lack of funds making Lincoln the northern terminus of the rail line. In 1870, rich clay deposits were discovered near Lincoln leading to the establishment of Gladding, McBean & Co which created pottery which the town is famous for. After the rail line continued, the town’s early population boom ended until the late 20th century when the Sacramento suburbs began expanding. In 2004, Lincoln opened the first casino in the Sacramento metropolitan area and in 2006 was named All-America City.
