About Lincoln County, WV

Lincoln County is a county located in the U.S. state of West Virginia . As of 2010, the population was 21,720. Its county seat is Hamlin . The county was named for Abraham Lincoln . Lincoln County is part of the Charleston, WV metropolitan area , which had an estimated a 2006 Census population estimate of 305,526 people.

Lincoln County was created by an act of the West Virginia Legislature on February 23, 1867, from parts of Boone , Cabell , Kanawha and Putnam counties. Jesse, John, David, William, and Moses McComas were the first English settlers in what is now Lincoln County. They cultivated 20 acres of corn, the first ever grown in the area, in 1799. Later that year, they returned to eastern Virginia to get their families. Their families were initially left behind because it was not known if there were any hostile Native Americans in the area, or if the soil would be suitable for cultivation. John Lucas, William Hinch, and John Johnson soon joined the McComas' in the county. They built cabins in the county around 1800. After the Civil War , there was an effort by former Confederates to rename the area "Davis County" after Confederate president Jefferson Davis , but the effort proved fruitless.
