Topic: Lincoln Street

Topic type:

There is no documentary evidence to indicate why this street was named Lincoln Street.

Lincoln Street is located in the Hamilton, New Zealand suburb of Frankton. Before the road was realigned in the 1970s Lincoln Street ran from Massey St to North Street. From North Street to Forest lake Road was Chilcott Street. North Street crossed the railway lines to Norton Road. After realignment and the truncating of North St, the whole became Lincoiln Street with the remnant of North St being renamed Chilcott Street.
