Lincoln County was carved from territory ceded to the United States by the Cherokee and Chickasaw Indian tribes. The Elk River, called "Chewalee" by the Indians, flows through Lincoln County. Legislation established our county during their session on November 14, 1809 to become effective January 1, 1810. Lincoln County was named for Revolutionary War hero General Benjamin Lincoln. He served under General George Washington and was known for being appointed by him to accept Lord Cornwallis' sword as a symbol of England's surrender to the American Colonies, thereby ending the American Revolutionary War for Independence.
The Jack Trail GeoTour
The Jack Trail GeoTour is a series of geocaches along the backroads and small towns of Middle Tennessee. There is no fixed itinerary, like on a traditional trail, but rather a series of points of interest in a self-guided, goal-oriented plan. We have created a special passport, which you can download here, which lets you track your progress as you hunt specially placed geocaches along the tour. This passport will help you collect “code words” to qualify for special geocoins for completion of the GeoTour.
