Lincoln County & Stanford, Kentucky
Lincoln County was one of the three original counties formed from Kentucky County, Virginia. The county was named after Revolutionary War General, Benjamin Lincoln. Most people assume that Lincoln derived its name from Abe Lincoln, but he was born 29 years after Lincoln County was established. Stanford is one of the oldest settlements in the state of Kentucky. The population of Lincoln was over 24,000 in 2010 with the city of Stanford having over 3,000. Stanford is thought to have received its name from ‘Standing Fort’ because it was the smallest fort in Kentucky, but it never fell to the Native Americans.
In 2013 there were 415 motor vehicle accidents including car wrecks, truck accidents and motorcycle wrecks in Lincoln County, Kentucky.
