The town of Lincoln was built in the 1800’s and today it is a National Historic Landmark. The Lincoln County war took place here, which was a fight between cowboys/ranchers and banker/politicians. Billy the Kid was one of the cowboys who fled during this battle. He was later found and brought back to Lincoln. While waiting for his trial, he escaped from the Lincoln County Courthouse. Today there are over 40 historic buildings throughout the town. You and your pup can go on a self-guided walking tour of Lincoln. Just pick up a map from the Visitor Center located on Hwy 380. There is a minimal fee for the map.
