Lincoln City is a city in Lincoln County on the Oregon Coast between Tillamook and Newport. It is named after the county, which was named in honor of former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. The population was 7,930 at the 2010 Census. During the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, this city was the first in the path of totality to view a total solar eclipse.

History

Lincoln City was incorporated on March 3, 1965, uniting the cities of Delake, Oceanlake and Taft, and the unincorporated communities of Cutler City and Nelscott. These were adjacent communities along U.S. Route 101, which serves as Lincoln City's main street. The name "Lincoln City" was chosen from contest entries submitted by local school children. The contest was held when it was determined that using one of the five communities' names would be too controversial.[6]

Cutler City

Cutler City is located on the east shore of Siletz Bay. The community was started by Mr. and Mrs. George Cutler. It is claimed they received the property from Chief Charles "Charley" DePoe of the Siletz tribe (part of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Siletz). Cutler City post office ran from 1930 until the formation of Lincoln City.[7]

Delake

Delake is near Devils Lake, and was named for the way the local Finnish people pronounced the name of the lake. Delake post office was established in 1924, and reestablished as Oceanlake (see below) in 1927.[7]

Nelscott

Nelscott was named by combining the surnames of Charles P. Nelson and Dr. W.G. Scott, who founded the community in 1926. Nelscott post office ran from 1929 until incorporation as Lincoln City.[7] Nelscott Reef is known for its surf and was in Surfer Magazine in 2003 as one of the Pacific Ocean's best places to surf.[8][9]

Oceanlake

Oceanlake was named for its position between Devils Lake and the Pacific Ocean. Its post office ran from 1927 until incorporation as Lincoln City.[7] In 1945, Oceanlake annexed Wecoma Beach and incorporated as a city.[10] The neighborhood is home to Oceanlake Elementary School.

Taft

Taft was named for the 27th U.S. president William Howard Taft. Taft post office was established in 1906, and was named when Taft was Secretary of War. The post office ran until incorporation as Lincoln City.[7]

Wecoma Beach

Oceanlake annexed Wecoma Beach, a community[11] to the north, and was incorporated on November 3, 1945.[12] Wecoma is a Chinook jargon word meaning "sea".[13] The post office at this locale was originally named Wecoma.[13] It was changed to Wecoma Beach in 1949.[13] The office is no longer in operation.[14]

Roads End

On July 1, 2013, Lincoln City forcibly annexed the Roads End community to its north, by informing homeowners they would not receive water service, unless the owner consented to the annexation.[15][16]

Government

The city operates under a city charter, with a paid city manager, Ron Chandler, acting as chief executive,[17] and a non-paid mayor who is elected for a four-year term, and six-member city council.[18] The city council is elected from three wards and serves four-year terms.[17]

Economy

Lincoln City has three primary economic resources: tourism, healthcare, and retirement.[18]

In 1995 the Confederated Tribes of Siletz opened Chinook Winds Casino at the northern end of the city on property overlooking the Pacific Ocean.[19]

Major employers include Chinook Winds Casino, city government, Lincoln County School District, and Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital.[18]

The Salishan Spa & Golf Resort, located south of Siletz Bay in Gleneden Beach, has dining opportunities, a shopping complex, cabin lodging, and a golf course offering views of the Pacific Ocean.
