Peachtree Street Storefronts, Lincolnton

Downtown Lincolnton was surprisingly busy when I was there. I was glad to see that most of the storefronts were in use.

The early history of the Lincolnton Methodist congregation has been lost but it is known that they were meeting by the 1820s, along with Baptists and Presbyterians, in a frame building known as Union Church. Methodists met at Union until the present church was constructed in 1915.

Lincoln County Courthouse, 1915, Lincolnton

Lincoln County was established in 1796 and the first court sessions were held in the home of Joseph Stovall. When Lincolnton was designated county seat circa 1800, a stone courthouse was constructed. A new courthouse was built in 1874 and served until the construction of the present structure. It was designed by prominent Southern architect G. Lloyd Preacher, who was responsible for such landmarks as the Atlanta City Hall and the Henry Grady Hotel, among numerous others.
