Lincoln is a charming and historic town located between Concord and Lexington and approximately 20 miles from Downtown Boston. This small town boasts a population under 7,000 residents who enjoy the beautiful rural New England setting.
With 80 walking and hiking trails and more than 2,500 acres of conservation land, Lincoln is perfect for the nature enthusiast. Lincoln does not have a scenic town center but does offer some retail amenities near the commuter rail station which is serviced by the Fitchburg Line.
Notable area attractions include the Thoreau Institute, DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, and the Minute Man National Historical Park.
Lincoln actually experienced growth in number of sales on a percentage basis comparing Q2 in 2019 versus 2020 (23.1% increase, from 13 to 16 sales).
