First Annual Lincoln’s Birthday Bash: Bourbon and Southern Food Tasting

Posted By on January 15, 2012

Hello Everyone,

I am sitting here in lovely Lincoln, Montana, patiently waiting for the snow.  The snow means so much to this town.  It brings in the snowmobilers, skiers and those who want to enjoy and explore the wonderful peace that only snow can bring to the mountains.

It is also imperative for Race To The Sky which happens February 12.  Waiting, waiting, waiting!  However, I have never been one to sit on my hands.  So while I’ve been waiting I’ve been wondering…what kind of party can I throw?   I looked at the holidays on the calendar and noticed that Lincoln’s birthday is February 12.  Well good gosh, this town is named Lincoln and nobody throws the man a birthday party?  I WILL!!!

President Lincoln was born in Kentucky on February 12, 1809.  If Lincoln were alive today he would be 203. Now I don’t know if our town was named after the President or after a placer company.  Both have been rumored.  Perhaps someone out there knows the truth and will tell me?  Either way, I think we need to throw a birthday bash.  This is the first annual…perhaps in time it will become a town event!

In honor of the 16th President of the United States, and the name of our town, we are throwing:


When: Saturday, February 11

Where: Logs Gastropub at The Hotel Lincoln
101 Sleepy Hollow Lane
Lincoln, MT

We will be tasting Knob Creek, Jim Beam Black, Makers Mark and Makers Mark 46, mint juleps, manhattans and more!  We will be pairing it with brie with Georgia peach  chutney, sticky chicken, corn pudding, frisee salad with apples and smoked gouda, dark chocolate and candied pecans.

Price: $36 per person.  All inclusive.

We are also giving a $10 discount on rooms.

Call today to reserve!!

    Hi Laurie!

    What a great idea to honor the namesake of our beautiful town, hope my husband and I can make it to the birthday party! You’re a great asset to our town.

    And to help solve the mystery of who our town is named after, I offer the following piece of information.

    A few years back, our family found the following information in a small little pamphlet at the Helena Library titled, “Lincoln, Long Forgotten Gold Camp” by Clayborn J. Anders, 1953. It states that our beautiful town was originally named “Abe Lincoln Gulch”, on August 31st, 1865. The reference: the Records of Lincoln Gulch, 1865-1879; the original hand written Recorder’s journal of Lincoln Gulch in the Library of Montana Historical Society, Helena, MT.

    To commemorate this news and preserve this knowledge, our family added the new street name “‘Abe Lincoln Road” to the town of Lincoln. The sign is located a few miles East of Lincoln, past the 4X4 sign. On the right-hand side, it cross-sections Highway 200 and cannot be missed.

    Another little tidbit of Lincoln history locals have shared is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday has been celebrated by Lincoln in years past, not sure how long ago. And in August, the birthday of our town was celebrated as Heritage Days.

    How about we get together over a glass of wine and talk about some future ideas?

    To Abraham Lincoln and the Town of Lincoln!
