Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park is a 2.5 acres (1.0 ha) urban park in downtown Portland, Maine. Created in 1866 following the 1866 Great Fire which burned down most of the buildings of Portland, it was named in honor of former President Abraham Lincoln. It is bounded by Congress, Pearl, Federal and Market streets. The land was purchased for just over $81,000 at 75 cents a square foot and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
