If you’re imagining a sleepy, old town - think again. Lincoln County, KS is for those looking for their next adventure.

The folks in Lincoln County work hard and play hard. During the week they do everything from farming the land to renovating historic downtown buildings. But on the weekends, they mountain bike down Beer Can Hill Road (you’ll have to ask the locals how it got it’s name), they boat and water ski on Lake Wilson, they meet friends for coffee and lunch at Violette’s downtown, they hunt for whatever may be in season from pheasants to white tail, they fish, they bird watch…they do it all!

Perhaps you already know of Lincoln County from their viral article in The Hustle about the family that moved there to renovate a house they got for free. That’s right, free. That family - Eddie, Julie and their 3 kids of, moved to Lincoln County for an adventure and for the opportunity to make something completely their own.

When the MakeMyMove team visited, this was a sentiment we heard echoed frequently throughout our interactions with residents. People had moved to Lincoln County for their own type of adventure. Whether that be building a home on their dream piece of property, starting that business they’d always dreamed of, growing a hobby farm, or outdoor activities galore - Lincoln County, KS has something for everyone.

P.S. If you don’t have a homemade strawberry pop tart at Violette’s, you’re missing out.
