Working to protect & preserve the agricultural, architectural,
and rural character of Lincoln, the Goose Creek
Historic District& its surrounding areas
Small town America, particularly rural small town America, is
disappearing - a fact all too clear to the people of Lincoln and
other fast growing areas of Loudoun County, Virginia.
Farms are giving way to dense subdivisions. Historic landmarks
are falling into disrepair. Our wildlife and open spaces are
disappearing. The quality of life that has drawn people to
America's small towns and villages for generations, is threatened.
Fortunately, there is a spark of hope. Hope for saving the cultural
and historic integrity of Lincoln, the Goose Creek Historic District
and surrounding areas; thanks to the people of the Lincoln
Preservation Foundation. Read our story, and join us in our fight.

The Lincoln Preservation Foundation (LPF) is a non-profit corporation founded in 1999 by residents
concerned about the fate of the Goose Creek Historic District, a 10,000 acre tract of rural farmland,
historic sites, and wildlife habitat in western Loudoun County, which includes the Quaker village of Lincoln.
Cousin to nearby Waterford, Lincoln contains several interesting and historic old homes, historic sites,
ruins, and the landmark Goose Creek Friends Meeting House.
Today in Loudoun County, the Goose Creek Historic District and Lincoln Village are endangered. With the
current development boom, the District stands to rapidly lose its unique rural character - unless we
succeed in efforts to preserve and protect it. Among other things, the LPF will strive to work alongside
landowners in or near Lincoln who desire to sell. The LPF’s main objective is protection and preservation
of the structures, environment, and rural character of the Goose Creek area.
Working to build community: The LPF hosts community events that help educate and inspire people to
preserve our area history. Past programs and accomplishments include the Lincoln Loop Walk, production
of the play, "All For the Union in Confederate Virginia" and various living history events. Prior guest
speakers in Lincoln include former news anchor Roger Mudd. Other national celebrity appearances on
behalf of Lincoln Preservation include former NPR radio host Bob Edwards, film maker Ron Maxwell and
actors Phillip Alford and Mary Badham (Jem and Scout from the classic film "To Kill A Mockingbird").
