Lincoln to commemorate 250th founding with big bash
On Jan. 31, 1764, the Lincoln charter was signed following the grant, by Benning Wentworth, then royal governor of the Province of New Hampshire, of more than 20,000 acres to James Avery of Norwich, Conn., and others.
Tower said “truly, at this point the community has stepped up in a big way.”
A listing of events and information about Lincoln’s birthday bash can be found at www.lincoln250.org.
Anniversary attendees of a certain age can enjoy a “Lincoln Anniversary Ale,” which Tower noted is being made by Woodstock Inn Station & Brewery, and motorists can show their town spirit by purchasing the 250th Anniversary Commemorative License Plate for $15 at Town Hall. Proceeds from the sales will go into the town’s general fund.
