1. Lincoln County History. The county was officially organized in 1866 and the name was changed to honor President Abraham Lincoln, who had been assassinated the previous year. The county’s boundaries would be redefined again in 1871 to reflect its present dimensions. In 1867 the county seat was moved from Cottonwood Springs to North Platte. The county’s first courthouse was built in 1874. After the turn of the century plans began being made for the present courthouse, which was completed in 1920.
