Lincoln is a very small town located in the state of Montana. With a population of 1,040 people and just one neighborhood, Lincoln is the 66th largest community in Montana.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Lincoln is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lincoln is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Lincoln who work in food service (24.85%), teaching (13.94%) and management occupations (13.03%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Lincoln is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Lincoln is worth considering.
Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 15.92 minutes getting to work every day.
As is often the case in a small town, Lincoln doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
