Welcome to Lincoln County, Idaho
Named for President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, under whose administration the Idaho territory was established.
Lincoln County was established March 18, 1895 with its county seat in Shoshone.
Lincoln County consists of three towns:
Dietrich, Richfield, and Shoshone.
It also includes registered voters in the Kimama area.
In 1913, Lincoln County was much larger
as it included what is now part of Gooding and Minidoka counties.
In 1919, the creation of Jerome County left only 1206 square miles
remaining in Lincoln County.
