Abstract

Place naming in early America was a form of vernacular expression. The Land of Lincoln, based on Lincoln place and business names is in central Illinois, and trends toward the southeast where the Lincoln family entered the state. While the Lincoln names were at first honorific, today they are mainly commercial. Lincoln names along the Lincoln Heritage Trail, in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky, are also discussed. - (SLD)
