Lincoln, NE

Lincoln, the capital of Nebraska and the county seat of Lancaster, is the second largest city in the state with a population around 225,000. Located in the southeast corner of Nebraska, the city was originally named Lancaster, but was renamed for Abraham Lincoln after his assassination.

Though tucked away in the Heartland, Lincoln is a cultural hub, centering around the University of Nebraska. Because it has no real suburbs, Lincoln's residents enjoy a mix of the peaceful countryside, city living, and the thrill of a college town. Lincoln was named the healthiest city in the U.S. in 2008 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Lincoln was founded in 1859 by a group of prospectors hoping to build a salt industry from the salt basin of what is now called Salt Creek. Not long thereafter, the prospectors turned from salt mining to agriculture, which became the foundation of the state's economy.

Today, Lincoln's important industries include banking, insurance, technology, service, and transportation by both trains and trucks. As the capital of Nebraska, Lincoln also provides many government jobs to residents. Some of the largest employers include:
