Lincoln Parish


As the Era of Reconstruction took hold following the Civil War, a new parish was carved from existing ones in 1873 and named after recently slain president Abraham Lincoln. The city of Ruston is in Lincoln Parish and is home to Louisiana Tech and Grambling State University. Ruston boasts a bustling economy and has a new airport to serve existing business and industry, including timber, poultry and cattle industries.
