Lincoln County




Eureka Main Street 6 am, summer 1922 (Donated by Lelani Arris  -

        In 1920 Lincoln County had a population of 7,797. Its most important town is Libby, the county seat, which has an altitude of 2,053 feet above sea level. It is a modern community, with good sewer and light systems, cement walks, graded streets, substantial business blocks and handsome and commodious residences. It also has a good high school accredited for the four year term.

        Next in importance to Libby is Eureka, a city located in the Tobacco Plains section, which at present is the chief agricultural district. It rivals the county seat in municipal improvements and is the home of the county high school, which, like that at Libby, is accredited for the four years term and gives additional courses in agriculture and normal training.

        Troy and Warfield are also busy and prosperous centers of population. - Montana, Its Story and Biography, Stout, Tom
