Lincoln Capital Building

The capital of Nebraska, Lincoln is a flourishing city located in the southeast corner of the state. Home to the University of Nebraska, Lincoln has been named the happiest city in the country. Its highly-rated schools, interesting museums, and endless things to do make it an ideal place for families and young professionals.

Lincoln began as a village named Lancaster founded in 1856, but leaders proposed renaming the city once the area was considered to be the new state capital. The name Lincoln was chosen after the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Each February, the city celebrates and honors Abraham Lincoln with an official celebration on his birthday with live music, historical reenactments, and exhibits.
