Lincoln and Districts Historical Society, Inc.

Liffey Cottage, built in 1875, has been restored and furnished as working family's cottage for the period to 1915. The cottage was moved from its original site in Lincoln's Market Square to the current location in 1977.
This site, next to the Lincoln Union Church (originally Presbyterian), and opposite the Primary School, was on land originally donated for the first library, now Pioneer Hall, which was moved to Gerald Street in 1900.

Pioneer Hall is used to house a small collection of early photographs, and other local material from Lincoln and Districts, and is close to the site for the first hotel (Perthshire Arms).

The Society also publishes regular newsletters and has a collection of archives, artefacts, documents and local history research notes and publications.

Our Lincoln Historical Walk brochure is available from both us and the Lincoln Library, or download the free app for a self guided tour of Lincoln's historic precinct.
