Lincoln Park Community Preservation Project
Lincoln Park is one of the great traditional neighborhoods that serve as a significant link to Rockville’s past. From 2004 – 2007, the City and current residents of Lincoln Park worked to develop the Lincoln Park Neighborhood Plan, and Lincoln Park Conservation District Plan, to set the path for the neighborhood’s future.
Lincoln Park in home to families whose histories are traced to an African-American community that existed during segregation. The community continues to thrive today, and the Neighborhood Plan provides the means for community adjustments to adjacent city growth, while also preserving its layout, appearance and character. Goals include protecting the most significance historic structures, providing for compatible new homes and rehabilitation of older homes.
The Montgomery County Public Library has developed a web site known as the Lincoln Park History Project. The community’s history is illustrated through historical photos and a description of local architecture. See http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/content/libraries/lpark/lpproject.asp.
